Memorial Day


 

Memorial-Day

Ahh!  Memorial Day… the three-day weekend that almost all working people enjoy.  The weather gets nicer.  We get to enjoy boating, fishing, barbecuing with our friends and families, and most off all, we get THREE days off work instead of the average Saturday and Sunday.  Is this what Memorial Day has really come to?  The enjoyment of a three-day weekend?  I think we are forgetting the true meaning of Memorial Day…

what-not-to-forget-on-memorial-dayMemorial Day is meant to be a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service.  This day was originally called Decoration Day and was first observed on May 30, 1868 when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery.  New York was the first state to officially recognize the holiday in 1873.  In 1971, congress passed the National Holiday Act of 1971 to ensure a three-day weekend for federal holidays and is now celebrated by almost every state on the last Monday in May.  Since the meaning of Memorial Day has diminished over the years, there have been efforts to try to get it changed back to the original date of May 30th.

So, we here at Sharn Enterprises, we would like to encourage everyone to take some time out  during their barbeques, boating trips, or fishing trips, to remember those who have given  their lives fighting for us so that we have the opportunity to do all these wonderful things.

Mother’s Day


Mothers Day Picture 2015

This upcoming Sunday, May 10th, is a special day to women all over the world… Any guesses what it could be?

It’s Mother’s Day!

 Mother’s Day is a celebration in which we honor mothers, motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence of mothers in society.

Although, this day is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, here in the United States, we know it to be celebrated on the second Sunday in May.

Mother’s Day began in the United States in the early 20th century.  The holiday was first celebrated in 1908 when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in Grafton, West Virginia.  She then began a campaign to make “Mother’s Day” a recognized holiday in the United States, which became successful in 1914. Anna Jarvis’ holiday was adopted by other countries and its now celebrated all over the world.

So, this Mother’s Day, be sure to tell your mother, grandmother, or maternal figure just how special they are to you.  From picking up our clothes off the floor, to being the shoulder we can lean on, Mothers are the real deal (and make it look so easy!)

Happy Mother’s Day from all of us here at Sharn Enterprises.
