When I first came to the USA, everything was closed for all the Holidays.
We arrived in NYC on Labor Day but the ship did not pull into a pier until the next day. All the workers in port had the day off.
In those days all stores were closed on Sundays and families spent time together.
Over the decades everything has changed and everyone is in a rush. I guess that things do change with time, but I liked the way life was when I was a kid.
