As summer swiftly comes to an end, and the heatwaves of August begin to ease up on our sun-burned skin, we can only wonder two things: one, why did summer go so fast?  And two, why can’t it be longer?  Labor Day, which has always been the beacon for the summer season ending, has been celebrated since the 1800s.  In fact, it is not only a National holiday here in the United States, but also in Canada.  What is so special about Labor Day that we can enjoy that three-day weekend with our family and friends?  Most of us would probably say, “Who cares?  It’s an extra day of rest!”  Well, we dug a little deeper to find out.

Labor Day was started as a celebration of the American labor movement.  Higher wages and shorter work hours; we all love those right?  Well, without the ever-changing labor laws and those awesome men and women that invented organized labor, these things would not be possible.  So, honoring labor history in the great US of A, has been (and continues to be) a tradition for a long while.  Well, we definitely approve!    

Here at EZ Mod, we feel that we work very hard to go above and beyond for you, the customer, all year long.  And as much as we absolutely LOVE each and every one of you, spending that rare “extra Saturday” in the year has us giddy and eagerly counting down the days.  Ah, we can see it now; an extra 24 hours to relax, have fun, enjoy the company of friends and family, or just sleep in.  Whichever way you decide to spend it, enjoy it to the fullest.  Appreciating the little things is what it is all about…not to mention we get a three day weekend!
