MEMORIAL DAY

                                                             
                                                                
 Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day
and honored only those who died fighting in the Civil War.
As we got involved in more conflicts and wars
 it was used as a way to remember American soldiers who die
                      in all wars while serving our country.


 

In the late 60's the last Monday in May was designated as
Memorial Day and  became a Federal Holiday.
There are many parades all across the United States
 celebrating our Veterans.
This day unofficially marks the first day of summer
(get out your white pants and shoes)
and many family picnics and parties are held.
SO
After you've done all your shopping and barbequing,
please take the time to give thanks
 to all those Veterans and their families for their sacrifice.

  
Have a safe weekend ...

Thank you Missy to let me know about Memorial Day. One of the reason of my blogging is to learn about other people in the world...
