Today is Wednesday, May 30, 2018! May 30th is the traditional and original day that Memorial Day is observed on. :usa:

Memorial Day is one of those group of holidays that was officially changed a few years ago so it could be celebrated as one of those three day holiday weekends, and thereby be observed on a Monday. Thus it was officially celebrated on Monday of this week on May 28th.

So whether you celebrate the day on an official Monday or on the traditional day of May 30, please remember why the day is being celebrated and remember those who have died in service to their country. :usa: :tombstone: :usa:

As a side note here, I always tend to celebrate Memorial Day on the traditional day of May 30th. Probably because I have an uncle that was born on May 30th, and it just seems right for me to do it on this day. But the important thing is just to remember the day! :)

Memorial Day weekend begins tomorrow in the USA! And some may even be celebrating today also. Memorial Day will be observed this year on Monday, May 27, making it a 3 day weekend holiday for everyone. :usa:

Traditional Memorial Day will be May 30th as always. It is important to remember the traditional (and original) day that Memorial Day is celebrated also. For one reason there are many people that were born on the original May 30th Memorial Day. My late uncle was one of those and I always remember his birthday on this day. So Happy Birthday to all those Memorial Day folks also.

Regardless of which day you celebrate, remember the most important thing is to remember, honor, and give thanks for all those who have died in service to their country. :usa:

You will probably hear a lot about the poppy flowers during this holiday as well. The Poppy is the official flower for Memorial Day! In many places Veterans will be out handing out artificial poppy flowers made by disabled Veterans. The Poppy's may be free or for a small donation to help the Veteran's, etc.

In Flanders Fields
by John McCrae
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
