Happy Actually Working Day!

Why is Labor Day called “Labor Day?” It should be called “No Labor Day.” Or maybe “Relax Day.” And then the day after Relax Day would be known as Labor Day.

Since it would be too confusing to change the name of Labor Day, let’s call the day after labor day, “Actually Working Day.”

As long as “Relax Day” has more monkeys, I’m all for it.

I think Labor Day is called as such because it is honoring labor, as in the people, the noun [labor force”> as opposed to the verb [to labor”>. Did you have a nice Labor Day?
