Labor Day is Monday September 6th…

Honor Labor Day - Skinny Kitchen

Labor Day is an annual holiday to celebrate the economic and social achievements of workers.  It was founded by the labor union movement which advocated eight hours for work, eight for recreation and eight hours for rest.  It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our country.   It’s always the first Monday in September. The first Labor Day holiday was first celebrated on September 5, 1882, in New York City.

Labor Day is traditionally celebrated by most Americans as the symbolic end of the summer.   Boy am I always sad about that…I love summertime!  It’s also seen simply as a day off from work and a great excuse to have a backyard barbecue and get-together.

All week long I’ll be sharing some delicious, skinny recipes to make for this special day.
