Spa Day Labor Day

2122

Celebrate The Labor Day Weekend!

Labor Day started as the celebration of the value and dignity of work, and its role in the American way of life. Every day in spas across the nation, spa services are performed with the same honor of those who come for a respite from their everyday hard work. Spas have become a sanctuary where we recover from our busy over-scheduled lives. At the spa, we feel honored, respected, celebrated, and leave with a rejuvenated mind. We also leave feeling better prepared to handle all that life has to offer to us.

The form that the observance and celebration of Labor Day should take was outlined in the first proposal of the holiday, a street parade to exhibit to the public “the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations” of the community, followed by a festival for the recreation and amusement of the workers and their families. This became the pattern for the celebrations of Labor Day.

Today, Labor Day Weekend is the summer’s last hurrah. Growing up in New York, Labor Day was the last day that the beaches and swimming pools would be open. It marked the end of summer and the beginning of school. Yes, soon, the warm sunny weather will be gone, the leaves will start to fall from the trees and we’ll all be preparing for the festivities of the fall and winter holiday seasons.
