Happy Memorial Day Weekend

Tomorrow is Memorial Day here in the U.S. and that makes this Memorial Day weekend. Today is also May 30th which is when the holiday used to be before they made a bunch of holidays fall on Monday to make three day weekends. That was about a thousand years before my time, however.

In my opinion, the Memorial Day part of the weekend really starts on Sunday, mostly.. Saturday is more regular except for the Veterans of Foreign Wars selling poppies to raise funds  at the entrances to most supermarkets and other big stores. Blog Mom likes to buy poppies from everyone she encounters, even though they're not real. She says our war veterans need all the fundraising they can get since we keep making more of them all the time. The main purpose of Memorial Day, though, is to honor those who died in the line of duty. 3 pm tomorrow is the National Moment of Remembrance, so a lot of ceremonies will take place then.

Whatever you're doing this weekend, I hope it's going real well for all of you.
