5 Ways to Celebrate and Decorate for Memorial Day Weekend
The last Monday in May is almost here and that means summer is (un)officially just around the corner! Not only does this patriotic holiday represent pool parties and sunshine, it also honors the lives of the United States Armed Forces personnel that have been lost during their service. This holiday typically is celebrated with parades and memorial services across the country. However, due to the pandemic, celebrations were cancelled last year. Now that your friends and family are getting vaccinated and ready for summer, a backyard barbecue could be the perfect way to celebrate!
