So I came back in and watched some more tennis.

Labor Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the first Monday in September (September 5 in 2011) that celebrates the economic and social contributions of workers.
If you pretend Linus is standing in a spotlight reciting this to Charlie Brown, it makes it sound better.
