WHAT IS MEMORIAL DAY?
So as you know I am in Miami enjoying all the beautiful men, women, and more men at Sizzle 2010 and I noticed that a lot of people are here celebrating PRIDE; however don't know what Memorial Day is... Well today's dish is really quick and straight to the point. What is Memorial Day?
Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May (May 31 in 2010). Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service. First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War (it is celebrated near the day of reunification after the Civil War), it was expanded after World War I.
