Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is an American federal holiday which falls on the 4th Monday of May. Although it is a holiday to remember fallen war heroes, it is also the unofficial beginning of summer!
In the south, Decoration Day began after the Civil War in 1866. May 5 was the original date after General Logan declared it a day to be observed nationwide. People would place flowers on the resting places of fallen soldiers to decorate them. In 1868, May 30 became the new date because flowers would be in bloom all across the United States.
Decoration Day gradually became Memorial Day. First used in 1882, it wasn't until 1967 that it officially became the name by federal law. In 1968, Congress passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act to move some holidays to a Monday to create a 3-day weekend.
Remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
Memorial day is a day to think about those we have lost, place flowers or a flag on their grave, and be thankful for those who are still in our lives.
Thank you to our military!
