MEMORIAL DAY

Happy Memorial Day

Guys,

While we were having fun barbecuing, eating watermelon, and hotdogs, and hamburger grilled outside, and drinking our favorite drinks and playing yesterday, it was such fun. But do you know that it was because of the meaning of this day, Memorial Day, that we could have such fun. So let’s see what makes it so special:

Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.

So, remember to thank God for all those men and women who served in this great country’s military so that we can have fun on Memorial Day.
