Labor Day represents a moment of transition—the final turn from summer to fall, the start of school and full return to the working world. Labor Day is also a holiday meant to celebrate the hard work, grit, and dedication of generations of American workers. The summer provides a nice break from the stress of school and work, allowing us to relax and refresh with a carefree attitude. But Labor Day offers a chance to celebrate the signature American work ethic and the value of workers' persistence and dedication. It also reminds us that we can carry a little bit of our worry-free summer mindset into the fall and make the year a bit less stressful. So instead of dwelling in autumn anxiety, fire up the grill for one last summer cookout. Savor those last moments of summer and celebrate the American work ethic this Labor Day. Here are 30 Instagram captions to describe all the feelings and emotions that Labor Day invokes.
