Memorial Day Weekend: What’s Everyone Doing?

27th May 2013 / By Irene S

Ahh yes, Memorial Day Weekend! This is the holiday weekend I look forward to every year, because it’s the first weekend filled with summer activities, such as beach bumming and rooftop brunches. Due to this nationwide holiday, we put together several pieces of fun data to add to your reading list for today.


Besides the fun in the sun we all plan to have, Memorial Day is a day to remember our fallen troops and thank the ones currently serving our dear country. Visiting local memorials of American soldiers, or simply shaking the hands of the men and women in military uniform is a fantastic way to show your appreciation and honor this special day.

Hope everyone has a fabulous day!
