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."

NORWALK, Conn. - Aug. 28, 2006 -- One year later, New Orleans is showing more signs of rebounding from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. In its annual survey of Labor Day vacation destinations receiving the most hotel room reservation requests for the upcoming Labor Day long weekend (September 2-4), (Nasdaq: PCLN) found that New Orleans' French Quarter made its way back onto the list after a one-year absence. To compile its list of the Top 50 Labor Day vacation destinations, looked at a sampling of more than 30,000 hotel room booking requests made by customers for the September 2-4, 2006 period. Since the study is based on actual booking requests, and not on consumer preference polls or votes, believes the study is one of the more accurate predictors of future travel trends.

In addition to consistently ranking in the Top 50, New Orleans was the 18th most-popular Labor Day vacation destination for 2004.

In other list results of note, New York City's Upper Midtown neighborhood became the #1 most-requested Labor Day vacation destination for 2006, replacing the Las Vegas Strip vicinity, which had occupied the top spot for each of the past two years.
