TBT Throw Back Thursday This Day in History: Memorial Day

No, as far as I know, the first Memorial Day did not occur on May 22 (This day in history). However, with Memorial Day rapidly approaching this upcoming weekend, I thought it appropriate to talk about Memorial Day on Throw-Back-Thursday.

For starters, I wanted to share my very first post with Knoji - What is Memorial Day?

And, finish it off with a Memorial Day Quiz.

How much do you really know about this national holiday?

When you celebrate this weekend with BBQs, picnics, and parades - Remember those who are no longer this side of heaven.

Maybe it's a member of the military who gave his or her life for your freedom.

Maybe it's a family member, like a grandma or an aunt, whom you will never forget and never stop missing.

Maybe it's a friend who you said your final good-byes to.

Maybe it's your savior, who gave the ultimate sacrifice on the cross.

Whoever you are remembering, honor these special someones on Memorial Day!  And, then also enjoy some laughter, some get-togethers with friends and family, and some BBQ.  Remembering isn't all somberness. It's also memorializing the joy and special reasons you miss them!
