Memorial Day (or Decoration Day as it was once referred to) was originally observed as a day for decorating the graves of soldiers killed in the Civil War.
Since World War I, it has become a day for honoring all those who have died serving our country.
It is a day for families to come together to remember relatives and friends.
As a holiday, May 26th will also be a welcome hello to the summer season and a glad goodbye to a long cold winter. You can even expect estate sales, garage sales, and even auctions really start to go hog wild this time of year.
