Labor Day

Theories floated for the reason we celebrate Labor Day, before the googlage:

excuse to play nothing but 80's music for 3 days in a row
excuse to drink beer and make fire for the meat
a reverent reflection of the physical and mental energy expended by the women of the world who, you know, LABOR to bring forth children from their own bodies

Turns out its a holiday to celebrate those who work, by not working. And drinking beer and listening to eighties music. Nary a mention of that whole expelling a human being from one's lady bits.
