Labor Day


An old custom prohibits the wearing of white after Labor Day. The custom is rooted in nothing more than popular fashion etiquette. In actuality, the etiquette originally stated that white shoes were the taboo while white or "winter white" clothes were acceptable. This custom is fading from popularity as it continues to be questioned and challenged, particularly by leaders in the fashion world. "Fashion magazines are jumping on this growing trend, calling people who 'dare' to wear white after Labor Day innovative, creative, and bold. Slowly but surely, white is beginning to break free from its box, and is becoming acceptable to wear whenever one pleases. This etiquette is also compared to the Canadian fashion rule of not wearing green after Rememberance day."

Labor Day 2007


Still haven’t decided where to go or what to do this Labor Day 2007 weekend? Don’t fret! We have compiled a list for you to choose which Labor Day 2007 activity can give you and your family a fun filled and engaging three-day holiday.


A Different Kind of Labor Party

An AP9 HomeWorks press release has listed a few Labor Day 2007 party themes that will mark a memorable Labor Day 2007 weekend for you and your family.

  • Viva Mexico. Make your house a Margaritaville and celebrate with a party "tequila style." There’s no need for sombreros (although they’re never a bad choice for a fun party); just create an outside party with a tropical theme, get lots of chips and salsa, and create a self-service "taco bar." Although lime margaritas are the most popular ones (frozen or on the rocks), you can make them in a great variety of flavors: strawberry, peach, watermelon and mango are some of the frozen choices that guests will definitely enjoy. Any music goes well with margaritas, so let your personal taste be the judge, but remember to play happy tunes, those that would make your guests sing, then throw in some songs in Spanish and challenge them to follow the lyrics.

  • A Day of Laziness. Labor Day was created by the labor movement in the 1880s to recognize the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of the United States. Declare a one-day, sit-down strike on Labor Day, and invite family and friends for a day of laziness like no other during the year. To keep the to-do tasks to a minimum, set up a big table with food and drinks to keep everything within reach, and put pillows, mats, lawn blankets and lounge chairs all around it. Also, get a couple of hammocks and display them when guests come in, so they can set them up and watch how the fun unfolds while they relax under the shade of the trees. Make sure you have a remote control to play the music; even if no one is dancing, they can sing a couple of tunes while they lay down and relax.

  • A Division of Labor Party (a.k.a. A Potluck Party). If you don’t want all of the responsibilities of hosting a party, invite your friends and relatives over, and ask them each to bring something -- hot dogs, burgers, soda, chips, dip, salads, desserts, games, sports equipment and more. Offer them prizes -- Best Dish, Most Creative Dip, Least Amount of Effort -- as encouragement.

  • Music for all ages. Create your own stage with a velvet backdrop (any color will do), silver stars hanging from the ceiling, a couple of rented microphones and a spotlight. Encourage your guests to bring a CD with their favorite song or band. You can create contests (guess the year the song was a hit, or name the band/artist of a song), have karaoke matches and dance to the rhythm of all music genres.

  • Venice Beach Party. Let your guests know this is not a mere "beach party." This will be a Venice beach kind of party, with all the ingredients of this famous beach on the Pacific Ocean. Encourage friends and family to let their wild side loose and ask them to use their talents to entertain others. Acrobats, clowns, fortune tellers, jugglers and such are all welcome! Crank up Jimmy Buffet and similar bands on the stereo. Don’t forget to set up a volleyball net. Get Frisbees, kites and footballs, and serve fresh beverages like lemonade and fruit punch.

For those looking for end-of-summer themes that will add a seasonal spice to your Labor Day 2007 party, check out these suggestions from Evite.com:

• Back-to-School Bash - Whether you’re actually going back to school or just reliving those crazier days, a Rage with cheap eats and rocking music will get you and your crew into the school spirit.

• Neighborhood Block Party - Get to know your neighbors with an old-fashioned block party. Ask people to bring games and food to share.

• Beach Party - It may be months before you can stick your feet in the warm sand again, so one final bonfire with S’mores helps you squeeze the most out of these last few summer days.

• Dancing Under the Stars - Enjoy the warm nights with an old-fashioned dance party. Bonus points for dressing up retro and playing big band or swing music.

The Back-Up Plan: Whenever you’re planning a backyard bash, you need a plan B in case the weather doesn’t go your way. Depending on your theme, that could mean renting a tent or canopy, or planning your party near a covered porch or usable indoor space.


Labor Day 2007 Activity Suggestions

Make the great outdoors even more terrific with fun outdoor group activities.

If you’re having a larger bash, split the group into two teams for a game of flag football, softball or volleyball. Groups that are smaller or mellower might prefer lawn games like bocce, horseshoes and croquet.

Labor Day hikes and camping trips are the kind of labor that nobody minds on Labor Day. Pile into as few cars as possible to make it easier to park and meet up. Ask everyone to bring their own water and some snacks, like trail mix or fruit, to share.
