Labor Day End of the Summer Bash Costume Ideas

September 2, is Labor Day, marking the official end of the summer. Many people will be spending their last few days away at the beach, and others will be home getting ready for school. The first Labor Day was created by the Central Labor Union to create a holiday for workers. In 1894, it became a federal holiday. If you’re at home why not celebrate with a costume party before the summer actually ends.  A costume party would be fun since most people don’t think of this day as a time to dress up, and it’s a good time to celebrate the ‘almost end of summer.’ Do you remember when you couldn’t wear white after Labor Day? I still have trouble with white shoes in the winter, I feel like a nurse going to work, but I love white jeans. Nurses aren’t required to wear white shoes anymore either.

In my mind, Labor Day reminds me of the song, YMCA by the Village People.

If you haven’t seen or heard it, here’s a link to a YouTube video!

National Kiss and Make Up Day and Costumes

Whoever heard of National Kiss and Make Up day? If you haven’t, August 26th is the day. What a great way to make up with an old love. We’ve all had fights and arguments with someone especially if you have lots of relatives. This is a perfect way to end an ongoing feud. If you’ve been thinking of making up with someone, August 26th is the day. What a fun day this can be. By the way, the gladiola is the flower of the day. Remember making up can be lots of fun.

Did we tell you that August is also National Romance Month?
