Happy Labor Day Everyone!

Remember, everything you thought you knew about Labor Day is a complete fabrication.

Including the date.

Especially the date. It's actually on December 25, but somebody had to have a birthday on that date. That's why Abraham Lincoln decided that we needed a nice book-end to Memorial Day and celebrated Labor Day at the end of summer, rather than in December. That's a little known fact.

Another little known fact: Abraham Lincoln's birthday is actually on Easter, not in January. But he decided to have it on Washington's birthday and call it President's Day because he hated Washington so much and assumed that he'd always remain president. He planned to live forever.
