Labor Day traditionally signals the end of summer and the beginning of fall. It’s all symbolic now as the weather is still acting like summer with steamy days and little relief. I will say it’s cooler than the 100+ temps we were experiencing a few weeks ago, but the humidity is back and it’s going to be in the 90s today.
It’s funny how things have changed, or have they? The advertising industry seems to think September means crisp days, turning leaves and warmer clothes. The stores begin to fill with jackets in July, long before anyone really needs one. White was once taboo to wear after Labor Day, but it’s not unusual (or unfashionable) to wear white pants and jeans all winter long. To me, Labor Day is the end of summer – heat or not. It means that one of my favorite seasons is just around the corner. Shorter days will be here soon and the leaves will start to fall. So despite the heat and humidity, I’m feeling a bit optimistic that this will soon end.
Happy Labor Day everyone! Hope your day is very relaxing.
