Starting the new semester before Labor Day always feels odd. It's still summer out there, not autumn yet at all, and having a day off so quickly seems silly. Not that I mind having a day off, mind you, even if all I do with it is try to catch up on the things I'm already behind on.

Are we all conditioned by our elementary school years to expect certain eternal verities?

I agree - school should start after Labor Day. However, I don't think it did at any point in my school career - even elementary!

I honestly don't remember any more if elementary school really started after Labor Day or not! But my graduate university did, and does still. In part because the ag school campus also houses the state fair grounds, and the state fair goes through Labor Day. :-)
