Hey, it's Memorial Day!

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.

How do you celebrate Memorial Day?
