Memorial Day originated from Decoration Day. It was almost like a family reunion. People would come together to decorate the grave sites of those they lost in war. Families and friends would normally head to church for a service and ‘dinner on the grounds’- aka a Potluck.
Although some of us may not have known anyone lost to the horror of war, we can still come together with our family and friends, to celebrate one another. To take time away from the stresses of work and normal day life. And have a day of fellowship and community. To be grateful for all that we have in our lives- friends, family, freedom.
