Labor Day -- Why not NO Labor Day?

It has always confused me that the day the country takes off to honor workers is called Labor Day. The idea is to give all the hard working Americans a break, so shouldn't it be NO Labor Day?

Anyway around my house, Labor Day seems to always be a day of labor. The last of the summer days off means trying to complete all those chores we meant to get done during the summer. So we run around trying to get things perfect before fall starts. Of course one of the flaws in this is that fall has already begun in the sense that school's back in session. So today we will clean house, work in the yard and talk about cleaning up Alan's workroom and the carport, but not do much about it. This is the result of Alan being a fly by the seat of his pants kind of guy, and my being anal. We don't compromise on organizing very well. LOL.

So what are your plans for the day? Do you work or do you play or do you do both?
