Labor Day in the United States is a holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It is a celebration of the American labor movement and is dedicated to the achievements of workers. Labor Day Parades, speeches and gatherings are held as a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. Labor Day has a unique history but most people just enjoy getting a day off from their labor and kids enjoy their first three day weekend.
The Start of School
Most Americans think of Labor Day as the end of summer. It wasn’t long ago that many schools started after Labor Day. With the trend toward shorter summers and year round school, schools are starting earlier each year. Today Labor Day is the 2nd or 3rd week of school and often the first three day weekend of the school year. This is a great time to spend doing something fun in Cincinnati or Northern Kentucky. Greater Comfort Heating and Air will also be celebrating Labor Day but rest assured if you have an emergency or need air conditioning repairs, we will be available to get your system up and running.
Sports and Labor Day
In Sports, many NCAA teams usually play their first games the weekend of Labor Day, and NFL traditionally plays their first game the following Thursday. Here is the football schedule. NASCAR also has races on Labor Day as well as the National Hot Rod Association. You may be able to catch a tennis tournament as well. Spending time with your family on Labor Day whether that means watching a sports game like the Kentucky Wildcats or playing football in your backyard is a great way to build relationships and create memories. Don’t let air conditioning repairs keep you from staying cool for the game. If you are experiencing A/C problems, Greater Comfort is here to help.
Labor Day Marks the Last Days of Summer
Labor Day is a great time for outdoor parties and BBQ’s. It won’t be long until the air will start cooling down and temperatures in the Tri-State area will begin to get colder. This is a great opportunity to enjoy the weather and your friends and family outside. This is also a great time to finish outdoor projects and maintenance at your house. Having an extra day off can give you a needed break from your work schedule and give you time to spend working on your honey-do list. Don’t forget now is also a good time to consider a HVAC Maintenance Program. Summer is ending and fall is just around the corner. You will soon be switching from the A/C to your heating system. There is no better time to check you system and get ready for the new season. If you have any questions about a HVAC Maintenance Program, please call Greater Comfort Heating and Air Conditioning and let us keep you comfortable all year long.
