Salt Lake City Child Photographer -Memorial Day

May 29, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Despite stores that think Memorial Day is a day to put things on sale, Time and Date.com clears the confusion up:

"Memorial Day started as an event to honor Union soldiers, who had died during the American Civil War. It was inspired by the way people in the Southern states honored their dead. After World War I, it was extended to include all men and women, who died in any war or military action." http://www.timeanddate.com/holidays/us/memorial-day
