How do you celebrate Memorial Day?


Recommended Posts

So I keep seeing these pictures on Facebook about how it's Memorial Day not national barbecue day. Ok, I understand that. But how do you go about celebrating Memorial Day?


My father and my father-in-law are both veterans of Viet Nam. Both dh and I grew up with barbecue day. Maybe something was happening on post/base. But in the end it was a family day with hamburgers and hotdogs and the fixin's. More a day to celebrate the start of summer than anything involved in actually remembering people who gave all. An odd Monday off for Dad.
