National Blueberry Popsicle Day
Popsicles were invented in 1905 by an 11-year old boy named Frank Epperson. One day he left a glass of a fruit-flavored drink with a stirring stick on his porch. When he woke the next morning, unusually frigid temperatures froze beverage solid – hence the beginning of the Popsicle!
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
