Get your best white shoes because Labor Day Weekend is coming up!
Labor Day was in creation of the labor movement, and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
So with this celebration and the end of the summer approaching, this is the last weekend to let loose and have fun! Drinking at a nearby pool, jumping up and down at the hottest club, or going to a family BBQ are a lot of ways that people celebrate this four-day-weekend. But if you are like us at beBATONROUGE.com, sitting back and watching Netflix is all the fun that we need!
So for this four-day weekend, lazy people can truly enjoy the festivities right on their couch.
Watch the new shows/movies on Netflix, Hulu, & Amazon Prime
If you have already streamed all the shows on Netflix, don’t worry! The popular channel, along with Hulu and Amazon Prime have added more tv shows and movies for you to curl up in front of the television for all four days of the weekend.
Starting on Sept. 1, Netflix releases all of the “Jaw” movies, “Shaquille O’Neal Presents: All Star Comedy” series, “The Rugrats Movie,” and the classic “The Secret Garden”. Need we say more?!
Hulu has released movies that we are DYING to see, such as: “Carrie” (1976), “Batman” (1989), “Addams Family Values,” and “American Loser”.
Amazon Prime has us anticipating sitting on our couch for hours for these releases: “Duane Michales: The Man Who Invented Himself,” “Lipstick & Dynamite: The First Ladies of Wrestling, Kingdom of Shadows,” and “The Last Godfather”.
The complete list is here.
