The first Labor Day holiday, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City. The idea came from the Central Labor Union. After a couple of years, the day moved to the first Monday in September and has been there ever since. In 1894, Congress made it a national holiday.
