We've reached the mid-point in the dog days of August, so it's not too soon to reflect on some cool outdoor holiday decorations to acknowledge the signposts ahead on the calendar, beginning with Labor Day (U.S.). Falling on the first Monday in September, Labor Day is one of those "in-between" holidays.

So do you wish to celebrate summer's last hurrah or plan early for the ghoulish delights of Halloween when Labor Day arrives? It's up to you.
