With the Labor Day weekend in full swing, I decided to take a look at some of the traditions and ways that different people celebrate the holiday. I started talking to some of my family and friends to see how they celebrate the holiday. While some of the ways were very traditional, there were several that were a bit surprising.

A lot of my family and friends celebrate in a simple way: by getting together, firing up the grill, and enjoying an afternoon in the backyard relaxing and catching up. Other friends plan on spending the long weekend on the lake boating or fishing with family or friends. A few of my friends plan on spending the weekend watching sports or movies and just relaxing.

I had two friends however, that surprised me with their choice of ways to spend the holiday. One friend said they were going to spend the weekend traveling to bigger cities like Lexington and Nashville to go shopping. The other friend is planning to spend the weekend catching up on sleep.

While these are all great choices, I think I am going to join my family, fire up the grill, and enjoy the 3-day weekend! However you plan on celebrating, I hope you all have a great and safe Labor Day weekend.
