Memorial Day

Normally on a holiday I tell everyone to have a happy one. You know...Happy Halloween, Happy New Year, Happy Mother's Day, Happy Easter. But somehow it doesn't seem right to say Happy Memorial Day,

Memorial Day is a day to honor those who have served and died in service to their country. It does not seem appropriate to enjoy it with a celebration.

Of course, Memorial Day is also considered the unofficial start of summer. Swimming pools and water parks will open. Families will be getting together for cookouts and parties.

So I will just say, enjoy your day, but remember what the holiday represents and honor it appropriately.
