- 27th -Memorial Day is officially celebrated on the last Monday during the month of May. Memorial Day is dedicated to servicemen and women who gave their lives for freedom and country. It is also a time to remember loved ones who have passed away. The roots of Memorial Day go back to 1865 and the end of the Civil War.
Memorial Day was traditionally held on the 30th of May. In 1971, Congress changed it to the last Monday in order to afford a three day holiday weekend. Regardless of the date, we encourage you to attend a parade, and to visit a cemetery to honor and remember our servicemen and women. Take time to remember lost loved ones in whatever way you feel appropriate.
Did you know? Memorial Day was first called Decoration Day. It was changed to Memorial Day in 1882.
Finished this quilt top, a Jelly Roll Mystery Quilt. Hope to start quilting next weekend.
