In the US, the idea of observing a special day set aside for workers on the first Monday of September grew gradually and spread from New York City to the whole nation between 1884 and 1894. The date 1 May was avoided because it was associated with the infamous Haymarket Square Riots that occurred on 1 May in the year 1886.

Most families in American Samoa will do something to observe the day. It could be a simple at-home celebration with a family feast to enjoy. It could be spending time at the local beach. Some also work in the garden, do chores at home, watch TV, or just sleep – a much-needed pastime for tired workers!
