Host Memorial Day Weekend Activities for Less
What are your Memorial Day weekend plans? I hope your weather outlook is bright and sunny as it is for the Midwest (where I live). This upcoming three-day weekend is a great time to have a barbecue, open the pool, go camping, and get together with friends and family. And, if you’re like me, you’ll want to be sure to apply sunscreen every few hours.
History About Memorial Day
While originally a time to remember fallen Union soldiers of the Civil War, today Memorial Day is a time to honor all American soldiers who have died in any war. This special day of appreciation and reflection was actually called Decoration Day until 1968. After World War II the Federal government changed the name of the holiday and moved the date of its celebration from May 30 to the last Monday in May as to create a three-day weekend.
