‘Memorial Day’ Posts
Memorial Day is the official start to warm weather and outdoor activities with your friends and family. Although there are outdoor activities you can do with your family during winter time, most people don’t venture out until they can wear shorts and a t-shirt. Getting outside with your family will encourage teamwork, sportsmanship, appreciation of nature and comradery. There are endless possibilities of things to do no matter where you live, including hiking, biking, fishing, basketball, soccer, baseball, volleyball, roller blading and much more. You just need to decide what you’d like to do and do it.
Like most people, I have always viewed Memorial Day as just another day off from school and the start of the warm weather vacation season. It’s the time of year when I pack away all my winters clothes and get out my fun Capri pants and flip flops to wear all summer. Something happened some years ago that made me view this day a little different.
Memorial Day is a day to reflect on those who have fought and perished for the good of our country. We are indeed deeply in their debt.
Most people take the 3-day weekend to celebrate in one of the greatest pastimes in America: the outdoor barbeque!
Whether it’s hot dogs, hamburgers, ribs or steak, millions of Americans like to launch their summer on this day by having a huge barbeque with friends and family.
Retailers take the opportunity to sell a lot of gas and propane grills and the myriad of accessories the weeks before this holiday, so you can make sure you have evertying you need for your long weekend.
