I hope everyone is having a relaxing Labor Day! As I was typing up this blog post, I was wondering who came up with the idea for Labor Day. So, off to Google I go! This what I found out.
Peter J. McGuire, a carpenter and labor union leader, was the person who came up with the idea for Labor Day. He thought American workers should be honored with their own day. He proposed his idea to New York's Central Labor Union early in 1882, and they thought the holiday was a good idea, too.
Did you know Peter J. McGuire started it? I had no idea!
Erica and I will be traveling back from our fun weekend in Texas. I will be back next week on September 9th at 7:00pm.
Have a great day!
Happy Stampin and
