With Labor Day weekend fast approaching, families everywhere are preparing to celebrate summertime's final hurrah. That said, waiting for your three-day weekend to arrive can make time slow to a crawl. To help you get through those final hours, these memes for Labor Day can serve as a happy distraction. Vacations, grills, and the end of summer can stir up a lot of feelings, as well as some pretty funny memes.
Like many memes, these tend to fall on the side of slightly cheesy humor. OK, they're very cheesy, to be honest. But when you're counting the minutes to vacation freedom time, goofy humor is just what your tired brain needs. At least, that's how my overworked brain reacts.
And really, Labor Day is a great holiday, so it's definitely worth the wait. Unlike major holidays that require so much preparation, Labor Day weekend is all about chilling and relaxing and enjoying your time off from work. It's a gloriously low-key holiday, perfect for the end of summer.
Lastly, it's wise to take a moment and remember the reason for Labor Day, supporting and honoring hardworking people. "Each year, Labor Day gives us an opportunity to recognize the invaluable contributions that working men and women make to our nation, our economy and our collective prosperity. It gives us a chance to show gratitude for workers' grit, dedication, ingenuity and strength, which define our nation's character," said Thomas E. Perez, the 26th Secretary of Labor. Celebrate this legacy with a chill weekend.
