Memorial Day

Has been a long weekend since Memorial Day on Monday and most of the US has that day off. Tomorrow (despite the rain here), will be filled with cookouts and family outings. I always enjoy Memorial Day as kid, because I knew school would be out soon for summer.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Memorial Day.

(via Wikipedia)”Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May (May 25 in 2009). Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service. First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War (it is celebrated near the day of reunification after the civil war), it was expanded after World War I to include American casualties of any war or military action.”
