Today is known as Veterans Day. It originated with Armistice Day observances marking the anniversary of the 1918 end of World War I, which became an
official holiday in the 1930s. In 1954, the U.S. Congress
officially turned
Armistice Day into Veterans Day.

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.
