Halloween Gift Boxes!

If you have the day off from work due to Labor Day, I hope you enjoy it.  We have the Labor movement that began over 100 years ago to be thankful for the holiday, our 8 hour work days and 5 day work weeks, safer work conditions, child labor laws and much more.  Today we think of the holiday as a time to picnic, the end of summer and the beginning of school.  There is so much more behind the holiday. Thanks to those individuals so many years ago we have the life we live today.  I don't know if I could work six days a week without any vacations?

HAVE A GREAT HOLIDAY!
