Our first thought about Memorial Day is usually about the food served at the party. The usual items will come off the barbecue grill and sides like corn and French fries. However, let’s also spend time remembering and honoring our fallen heroes who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country on Memorial Day.
The U.S. first observed Memorial Day on May 30, 1868. It was called Decoration Day, a holiday proclaimed by the Commander in Chief John A. Logan of the Grand Army of the Republic.
Logan wanted the day to honor the Union soldiers who perished during the Civil War by decorating their graves. After the end of World War I, Memorial Day began honoring Americans who were killed in any military conflict.
The Memorial Day Weekend offers us a terrific chance to enjoy the great weather of late spring with our family and friends. We typically celebrate the holiday outdoors with a cookout in our backyards. However, some of us are busy these days working our jobs and raising our families, and sometimes we could use professional help hosting a party at home. We usually don’t want something fancy but affordable service.
