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…
Memorial 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.
