Memorial Day Weekend is upon us, and with it comes different meanings.
One being observing the actual holiday …
Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday of May. It was formerly known as Decoration Day and commemorates all men and women, who have died in military service for the United States. Many people visit cemeteries and memorials on Memorial Day and it is traditionally seen as the start of the summer season. (from timeanddate.com)
Another being the beginning of summertime activities …
The school term is drawing to a close, the weather is getting warmer, it stays light longer in the evenings. Everyone wants to spend more time outdoors after being cooped up over the long Chicago winter.
Signs of summer are popping up all over:
- The trees have leaves, lawns are green, flowers are blooming and vegetable gardens are being planted.
- Burgers and brats are sizzling on freshly scrubbed grills 🙂
- Beaches & pools are opening, people are hiking & biking ~ they’re camping & fishing.
- Vacations and long weekend getaways are being planned.
It seems like a large part of summer is about relaxing & enjoying fun, leisurely activities. Of course, in today’s busy 24/7 world it’s not always easy to find free-time to rest and relax.
