Memorial Day – Monday, May 29

Memorial Day
Memorial Day

Memorial Day is an annual, authorized holiday that has been recognized by the US government as a day for remembering those who died while serving in the armed forces. On this day many people visit memorials and cemeteries and place flags on graves to show their respect.

This holiday was originally known as Decoration Day as was used to honor the Union and Confederate soldiers who lost their lives during the Civil War. It wasn’t until the 1900’s that is became a day that honored all the soldiers who dies while serving their country. There was another 60 years until it was changed from Decoration Day into Memorial Day in 1967 and then 4 more years until it became a federal holiday.

Memorial Day and Veterans Day are often confused because they both are for honoring military personnel. The difference is, Veterans Day honors any person that has been in the armed forces while Memorial Day is for remembering the people who died during their service. Memorial Day also marks the begging of summer season with most recreational pools opening on this weekend.

On this day all American Flags are raised to full-staff then slowly lowered to half-staff position, this position is specifically to honor all the fallen soldiers of our great country. The flag stays at half-staff until noon when it’s then raised all the way to the top for the rest of the day. If transitions to full-staff to commemorate the notion that the fallen soldiers memories will be raised by the living who will not allow their sacrifices to go in vain.

Mother’s Day – Sunday, May 14th

Mother’s Day is marked as a day of celebration and honoring of all mothers, maternal bonds, and influence of moms in society.

Mother's Day
Mother’s Day

The origins of Mother’s day dates back to 1908 in West Virginia when a lady by the name of Anna Jarvis decided to take it upon herself and hold a memorial service for her mother. The service was held at Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church which is now marked as the International Mother’s Day Shrine. While it was originally denied by congress, in 1911 all of the states in the US observed Mother’s Day and some even officially recognized it as a local holiday. Anna Jarvis intended Mother’s Day to be a day to honor all moms because she believed that they were the one person who has done more for you than anyone in the world!

Head on over to Frame USA and frame all your Mother’s Day memories!

May The Fourth Be With You

Star Wars

May 4th is widely recognized as a day to celebrate all things Star Wars! While not an official holiday, this date was selected due to the play on the big Star Wars catchphrase “May the Force be with you.”

In 2007 the city council of Los Angeles established May 25th as Star Wars Day because it marked the 30th anniversary of the release of the original Star Wars film, A New Hope.

That mere fact doesn’t deter any die-hard Star Wars fan from recognizing May 4th as the actual holiday. In Canada they went so far as to organize a celebration of Star Wars Day, with the first annual event taking place in 2011. Then to double down on May 4th as the unofficial but official celebratory day, The Walt Disney Company has hosted many Star Wars gatherings and events annually on this day.
