Happy Memorial Day!

Memorial Day Infographic

Happy Monday everyone, and a Happy Memorial Day to my readers here in the States. Memorial Day is traditionally considered the unofficial start of the summer season, at least it is where we live. Amusement parks, pools, spray grounds and park facilities open during the week and keep longer hours on the weekends. Some families kick off the season with a summer vacation. With such a festive holiday upon us, I’ll spare you the usual informing and witty financial post today and instead share a nice little infographic on the origins of Memorial Day. I’ll be busy manning the grill and serving up something tasty for the family while enjoying time with friends. As you enjoy the time with your friends and family today, I do encourage you to remember the service men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice – their lives, so you can know freedom. Even if you’re not an American, I encourage you to take a moment today and remember those who have fallen while in service for your country.

What will you be grilling today?

  1. Enjoy the long weekend, and the burgers! (only 15% of probability there will be no burgers on your table, right?).
    We remember our WWI and WWII heroes on the day of liberation but don’t have a memorial day, that would be a good thing to remember the people who are serving right now, or did in other wars.

  2. I think it´s great that you have a Memorial Day in the States.. it´s definitely something I wish we had over here too. We do have a similar kind, on May 8th, which is originally the Liberation Day for Norway (WW2), and now also serves as a Veteran´s day, but the day isn´t talked about much. There´s a small military gathering before noon, but it´s nothing big. No official holiday! Which I honestly think is a disgrace, but maybe that´s just because I´m together with a former soldier who served in Afghanistan..
