Labor Day in Boston from Longfellow Bridge

If you’re like many American’s the thought of Labor Day brings a mix of emotions. Wait, mix of emotions you say? I thought Labor Day was for pool parties, cookouts, and an extra day off work, why would I have mixed emotions about that? Well, many people often forget that Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer and the start of school for kids. Now for parents, kids going back to school might add another positive aspect to the holiday, but for kids, not so much. Here is a list of things that happen on or around Labor Day each year that some people might not realize and again might bring a mix of emotions…
