Great Ideas for a Memorable Memorial Day
The first big holiday of the summer, Memorial Day, is just a few weeks away, and it’s time to start getting prepared for the celebration. If you haven’t marked your calendar yet, it falls on May 30th this year.
Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, began in 1868 as a way to honor those fallen in the Civil War by decorating graves with flowers. By the beginning of the 20th century, it had become a tribute to all of America’s war dead.
Today is a dual-purpose holiday. It’s still a time to remember our soldiers, and many people spend the day placing flags on the graves of veterans. But it’s also become the traditional start of summer, and in that manifestation it’s a time for cookouts, outdoor fun, the Indy 500, and partying, and those things require a lot of stuff if you’re going to do it right.
