Labor Day is also designated in the fashion industry as the day to pack away your "white" clothing, especially accessories and clothing worn below the waist. This means white purses, jewelry, pants and shoes. Also, you are supposed to switch between straw and felt cowboy hats after Labor Day.
Here's some reasons we don't wear white before Memorial Day or after Labor Day.

Too dificult to find your children in the snow if they're wearing white.
The laundramat pixies traditionally celebrates the passing of summer by leaving a brand new red sock with every load of whites.
The same reason doctors wear pink lab coats instead of white ones.

Takes until Memorial Day to get the Labor Day barbecue ketchup stains out.
Martha Stewart has a wicked temper, that's why.
So my white hat goes on the shelf until Memorial Day!!
And there you have it, "That's it for Today!"
