Labor Day in the United States is a public holiay celebrated on the first
Monday in September. It honors the American labor movement and the
contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and
well-being of the country. It is considered the unofficial end of summer.

In 1887, Oregon was the first state of the U.S.to make it an official public
holiday
. By the time it became an official federal holiday in 1894, thirty U.S.
states
officially celebrated Labor Day.

Sir George Ivan "Van" Morrison is 71 years old today.

Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison’s albums Moondance and 
Astral Weeks have received critical acclaim. His father’s huge 
record collection inspired him to pursue music. Many have said
Morrison is a very private person and sometimes refuses to look
at the audience while performing.
