Borrowing from PBS, Labor Day has been a national holiday in the United States since our Congress and President Grover Cleveland made it happen in 1894. The first Monday in September has been the day for the designated holiday.

The holiday began as Labor Unions and activists promoted parades to celebrate workers and workers’ rights.

The first parades actually started in 1882. Take a look at this video for more specific information on the beginnings of Labor Day.


This post will continue with a list of Labor Day specials from Amazon. As an Amazon associate, I may use their links in my posts. Being an associate does not raise or lower the Amazon prices. But when I feature special promotions, I am pointing out items that have been reduced for the occasion of Labor Day.

Amazon is noted for a huge inventory of products, quick delivery and overall good service. To stay within my niche as much as I can, I will be showing “deals” relating to sports and outdoors. Lots of outdoor and camping items to view.
