Labor Day Celebrations

Here at Alpha Line Cotton, we celebrate Labor Day with valuable promotions and discounts for our awesome customers. But what is Labor Day all about?

Labor Day is on the first Monday of September every year. It was originally organized to celebrate various labor unions' strengths and contributions to the United States' economy.

It’s a federal holiday, often meaning that many stores and government offices are closed to give people the chance to celebrate.

Labor Day became an official federal holiday in 1894 and has been graciously celebrated ever since.

But How do you Celebrate?

There are many ways to celebrate Labor Day, here are some suggestions

  • Volunteer Work/Charity Work:

    Supporting one of your local charities that really make a difference. Why not decide to volunteer yourself this September 4th. Volunteering can help to improve the lives of those less fortunate than yourself whilst giving something back to society and the lives of others!

  • Host a Party:

    Why not host a themed party and have friends over and celebrate together. Perhaps choose a fancy dress theme in honour of labour day, or maybe ask every guest to prepare a dish or a cocktail to bring along. This takes the pressure off you to prepare all the food and drinks and adds variety to your evening/day.

  • Throw a Barbecue:

    Cook up an end of summer treat for friends and family with a Labor Day barbecue celebration. Enjoy the last of the summer weather with some fresh meat and themed cocktails while you enjoy family time and great food.

  • Plan a Family Day Out:

    A family day out is an awesome excuse to explore somewhere new as a family and bond over the holiday celebrations. Whether it’s a trip to the beach, the park, a museum, a nice restaurant or just a brisk walk in the country. Planning ahead can ensure you find the ideal activity for a perfect labor day celebration.

  • Plan a Parade:

    Plan a Labor Day parade for you and your family and friends. Choose a theme, create a plan of action and include music, costumes, dancing, prizes and food and drinks! The more quirky and original the idea the better!
