Today is a holiday in the United States called "Labor Day". Even though the meaning of Labor Day is to celebrate the hard work of workers and their families, I think that many don't think about it's meaning, and just see it as an opportunity to get off from work.  It is held on the first Monday in September.  Since it is on a Monday, many can enjoy a long three-day weekend. In English, the way to say "三連休” is "3 day weekend". I remember as a child, it was a time for my family and friends to gather together and have a BBQ. But I also remember it being a kind of sad holiday, because it made me realize that the summer was over, and it was time to go back to school.  It is the last holiday before school starts, and it also marks the beginning of football season.  The NFL usually holds its first game on the first Thursday after Labor Day.  When school starts, there is the excitement of football season in the air.
