The origin of Labor day goes all the way back to the 1880s. It is still celebrated today, but its aim has changed a bit in time.
It was originally a day to honor workers who have done so much for the country. People have barbecues on this day and they spend it with friends and family.
Labor day is in the beginning of September, the perfect time for a party. It is still warm enough to have a pool party or a barbecue outside, but not too hot. Such a party is mostly an outdoors party.
It is not uncommon to play sports during Labor day. Depending on how
many people are invited, you can make it a party of sports. For example
you can play football, softball and volleyball, but other sports such as
horseshoes and croquet are also quite popular.
Another great activity for this day is organizing a day trip somewhere. Everybody will be happy to spend some time away in nature.
If non of these sound appealing and you just want to relax, organize a pool party. You cannot go wrong with that!
