Use Labor Day in a Story

I decided to take advantage of the holiday falling on a Monday to inspire today’s writing prompt. How would you use Labor Day in a story?

For those of us with kids in school, Labor Day often feels like New Year’s Day. The beginning of a new school year feels like it should also be the beginning of the actual year. This makes Labor Day a good setting to start or end a story. I think it’s particularly effective to start a story because Labor Day picnics give you a reason to bring many different characters together and introduce them quickly to the reader. It would work well as ending if you had a story taking place over a summer.
