YoTrip-Words and Thoughts

A place and space for me to express my thoughts

Tuesday Thoughts by YoTrip for September 6, 2011-Memories of Labor Day Past (Vol.6, Iss.1)


Memories of Labor Day Past

The first Monday in September is designated as Labor day, when we pause and salute the Anerican worker. Labor day also  brings summer to a close, and all school-age children return to the classroom. The fashion debate for,all seasons: is “white” acceptable to wear beyond this date, and has,authority to say “yes”. It was not Labor day weekend without Jerry Lewis filling the television airways on the Muscular Dystrophy Telethon, an entertaining spectacle to help raise money and awareness for this debiliating condition.
For many families, Labor day is the last gathering of the season with food, fellowship, and fun.

Like it was yesterday, I recall being with family and friends in the ’70’s & ’80’s at one of the familiar houses or parks to celebrate. The men could be found mastering the grill with massive amounts of meats to be grilled. The women made the sides and sweets-salads and vegetables of every kind, with cakes and pies to booth. The children ate snacks and played games with an anticipation of the scrumptious food being prepared.

As day turned to night, we saw the appearance of fireworks. The sky was lit up in an amazing explosion of colours dispatched from the grounds below. The young children, ran around with sparklers and snap pops, it was low level night lights, but fun just the same.

The Labor day memories, makes me wish for days of time gone by and by. Coming together and enjoying Labor day as summer’s last hurrah, was always so much fun. Let me say, happy end of the hot summer days, and hello to the coming fall season.
