Happy Labor Day!
We wish all of our North American friends a wonderful Labor Day (or Labour Day)! Of course, it's our national past time to grill out and relax on this three-day weekend, but there are also various other ways to pass the time. Here are a few fun ways to celebrate Labor Day.
Take a Drive
With stock markets hitting some major bumps recently, cheap gasoline should provide Americans a far smoother ride this Labor Day weekend and the likely prospect of $2 pump prices by Christmas.
Average regular unleaded will cost the least for the Labor Day break since 2004. The national average was $2.44 a gallon Thursday, down nine cents over the past week and $1 below the year-ago price. From: USA Today
Save Some Cash
For most retailers, Labor Day weekend sales are second only to Black Friday. In the market for a laptop? HP is offering $600 off select products. From: USNews.com
Show Your Patriotism
Fly Old Glory, wear a Stars and Stripes tee shirt or decorate your home to celebrate the good ole USA. The American Flag Mason Jar set in the picture at the top of this post is from Monogrammed Memories on Etsy ($30).
Wear Those White Clothes
In high society, Labor Day is (or was) considered the last day of the year when it is fashionable to wear white or seersucker. From Wikipedia
Eat a Turkey Leg
