🇺🇸A Day to Remember and Celebrate🌹

Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering those who died while serving our country.  It is currently observed every year on the last Monday of May, so we will celebrate it this Monday, May 28th.  The holiday was originally held on May 30 up until 1970.  Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.  Many people visit cemeteries and volunteers place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries.   This information is for my blog followers and viewers outside of the United States, who might not know of our traditions and customs:)  I enjoy reading their blogs to understand their customs and get to know their land more fully…I feel it helps us bring the world together:) IMG_2208 2 This picture is of my mom and me visiting my dad’s grave at the Bourne, National Cemetery, last year.  I like to say my dad Continue reading “🇺🇸A Day to Remember and Celebrate🌹”
