Memorial Day is still a celebration a serious one but a celebration none the less. We will be taking time sitting by the pool, looking ahead towards our summer vacation—but so many of us will also remember that this weekend signifies much more than a 3 weekend.
Memorial Day is a solemn day of remembrance - to remember all those that died serving our country in the armed forces. Originally known as Decoration Day for the soldiers that died in the Civil war, we renamed it Memorial day to honor all our fallen. This holiday started to gained ground after World War II, a war that brought great unity to our country.
In 1968, Congress passed the Uniform Holiday (Holy day) act and created the last Monday in May as the official day our nation honors our fallen.
Those of us that work at MoregiftsofDC.com - don't promote this Holiday to profit solely from the selling of the products we provide but we celebrate the freedom, the liberty, and we celebrate the sacrifice others have made to allow us to carry on. We celebrate with an expression of patriotism for this day and the other federal holidays we are blessed to observe.
May God Bless America -
