Top 5 Products for Labor Day Weekend

It’s that time of year, again. Schools are resuming session, their doors opening to sunburnt, some bummed, summer kiddos. Sports are returning from hiatus, their practices and games coming back into play. Amusement parks are trying to squeeze one more weekend out of you and your wallet, vying for just a little bit more of your time and money. I am of course talking about Labor Day weekend, the unofficial end of Summer. The time where we get one more weekend to get our butts on the lake. One more weekend to get together with our friends and family before the busy season kicks in and revs itself into high gear. One more weekend to just bask in the warm glow of summer’s goodness and all it brought. Sweet sunny rays and lounging on the porch. One more weekend to party your little hearts out in whatever way suits your fancy.

Does it involve grilling? Hot dogs? Hammocks? However you like to spend your Labor Day weekend, we have put together this list to help aid you in your celebration. Celebrated nationally since 1894, Labor Day was the turning point for the American worker. With a holiday to celebrate them and all they do, we started to see more and more labor laws go into effect. 12-hour days and 7-day weeks would no longer be the norm, at least for the vast majority of workers in the industrial world. This was thanks to the plethora of unions sprouting up all over the place and many more people organizing on their own accord to fight for a better way to live. Labor Day is a pretty great holiday. Not only is it a wonderful time to commemorate and honor workers all over the world and country, past and present, but it’s a whole heck of a lot of fun to do it together. Here at the United States Flag Store, we have compiled a list of our Top 5 Products for your Labor Day Weekend Celebration!

1. USA MADE 3×5′ American Flag

First things first, let’s get you set up with a new American Flag. Whether you don’t have one or maybe it’s just time to replace that Old Glory that hasn’t come down for the better part of a decade, it is always great to make sure your symbol for The United States of America is in tip top shape and suitable to be the center of attention or as an eye catcher at your party. The flag I am going to recommend for you today is the Super Tough brand 3′ x 5′ American Flag. It is easily one of our most popular flags with a 5-star rating from over 800 reviews. This flag is made of nylon and won’t require too much wind to see ‘er wave at you. Made 100% in the U.S.A., there’ not many better ways to honor American workers than by buying from American workers. Not only that, but it’s also super fade resistant and tough to beat.

2. Valley Forge 20ft Flagpole

In addition to updating your American flag, we also offer a beautiful 20ft Flagpole to proudly display your flag at home, having a flagpole increases curb appeal and you can hang 2 flags at once on the same pole like your State flag or Military flag under the American Flag. This particular flagpole kit also comes with a free American Flag! Our customers love this flagpole and often comment how easy installation was and that it is very durable.

3. Decorate your front porch with a Patriotic Pleated Fan

You can show your red, white and blue in more ways than just the flag, but also with a patriotic pleated fan! These look great on entryways, porches, railings and add that extra bit of flare and zest to your party and home. Celebrate this historical holiday with these historical decorations from yesteryear.

4. Gather around an American Flag Firepit

We have two different options for this one, a tattered American Flag and standard American Flag, made with a laser cut design with the classic look of unfinished steel, you’d be hard pressed to find a cooler piece of practicality and patriotic pride.

A Few Facts About President’s Day

February is a popular month among our past presidents – both George Washington and Abraham Lincoln were born in February (as were William H Harrison and Ronald Reagan), and President’s Day falls on the third Monday of the month. But who exactly does President’s Day celebrate?

It all started in 1800. After George Washington’s death in 1799, his birthday (February 22) became a national day of remembrance. The 1832 centennial of his birth and the start of construction of the Washington Monument in 1848 kept Washington’s memory in the national spotlight, and the tradition endured. In 1879, Washington’s Birthday officially became a federal holiday. At first, it was only celebrated in the District of Columbia, but in 1885 it was expanded to the whole country.

Washington was the first individual to be honored with a federal holiday; it would be another 98 years before Martin Luther King, Jr. became the second.

As we all know, President’s Day doesn’t fall on Washington’s February 22nd birthday. This is because in 1971, Richard Nixon signed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act. This law shifted several federal holidays from predetermined dates to designated Mondays. The bill received support from both the private sector (who knew that more long weekends would increase retail sales) and labor unions (who liked the idea of more long weekends for workers). The Uniform Monday Holiday Act also included a provision to combine Abraham Lincoln’s February 12th birthday and George Washington’s February 22nd birthday; in many states, both birthdays were celebrated.

Thus, President’s Day was born. Though originally intended to celebrate Washington and Lincoln specifically, the holiday is now popularly seen as a day to celebrate all presidents, past and present.

Some states have even chosen to customize the holiday by adding new figures to the celebration. Arkansas, for instance, celebrates Washington as well as civil rights activist Daisy Gatson Bates. Alabama, meanwhile, uses Presidents Day to commemorate Washington and Thomas Jefferson (who was born in April).

Boxing Day

Boxing Day is observed annually on December 26th in the United Kingdom and other European countries, as well as in former British colonies including Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. It became an official holiday during the reign of Queen Victoria (1837-1901), though some historians trace its origins back much further to medieval times. Today, it is mostly an extension of the Christmas holiday, that includes sporting events (read on to see if boxing is one of those sporting events) and shopping (sort of a sporting event).

While no one really knows where the name “Boxing Day” originated, many historians believe the name is derived from the church practice of opening alms boxes the day after Christmas and distributing money to the poor. Historically, British employers followed the church’s lead by giving workers and servants gifts or cash on December 26.

Others believe the “box” refers to the boxes of gifts that employers gave to their servants on the day after Christmas. In wealthy households, servants were often required to work on Christmas Day, but was given December 26th off in order to celebrate the holiday on their own.

Today, Boxing Day is the time for getting together with those you weren’t able to on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, to visit, eat leftovers, drink, and watch sports.
Football (the non-American version) and horse racing are popular sporting events that take place on Boxing Day. Fox hunting was also a sporting event for the patricians. However in 2004, it became illegal to hunt foxes with a pack of dogs. Hunters will still gather, dressed brilliantly in red hunting coats, but now they follow artificially laid trails. In other countries, Boxing Day is celebrated with…wait for it…prize-fighting events. These include former British colonies in Africa and the Caribbean.

Boxing Day has become known as a big day for shopping. Stores offer steep discounts, and people spend hours waiting in line for these huge deals. It’s basically Black Friday Part II (And as a side note; Britain and Canada both recognize Black Friday on the same day as the US, despite celebrating Thanksgiving in either a different month or not at all).

Ireland refers to December 26th as “St. Stephen’s Day”, named after the Saint recognized as the first martyr in Christian theology. Ireland also refers to this day as Wren Day, a nod to an old tradition in which poor children would stone a wren (to represent what happened to St. Stephen) and then go around town knocking on doors asking for money. While this tradition continues, a fake wren is now used, and the money collected is for charity.

Hope this sheds a little light when you see “Boxing Day” on the December 26th block on your calendar.
