We celebrate Memorial Day, honoring those who have died. It used to be called Decoration Day and people traditionally decorated the graves with flowers and sometimes flags, because it originally honored fallen soldiers. This weekend is viewed as the kickoff of summer, and people do lots of fun things, like camp and boat and have barbecues. Many of them have forgotten its more somber meaning. Stores use it as a great way to have sales. I worked today, it is Friday. Tomorrow, Saturday, hubby and I will have a food sampling event. Monday, the "official" holiday, I will work. That leaves Sunday. Sunday we will have church, and a concert by a traveling music group of retired gentlemen. That evening we will have a hymn sing and ice cream social. I am looking forward to those things. Have a great weekend, whether it is a holiday you celebrate or not, and even if you need to work, have some good days as well.
