A Clippy Salute

Happy Memorial Day! Today, we salute the noble men and women who have given their all in the service of our nation.

So hats off to all our heroes. Here's a little Clippy salute that we wholeheartedly give to you: our Liberty Clippy!


Some fun facts about Memorial Day:

Memorial Day was formerly known as Decoration Day. It commemorates American men and women who died while in the military service. Traditionally, people observe this holiday by visiting cemeteries and memorials to pay homage to our country's heroes. There are also national celebrations, where people gather together with flags of the United States of America in a parade to honor fallen heroes.

Apart from these, some people also love to go on picnics and have barbecues among family and close friends. So for this week, I'll be posting great ideas for gatherings and fun activities that you can share with the kiddos! Plus, let's not forget that with this holiday, we officially mark the beginning of summer!

Ponder, ponder, ponder...
How do you celebrate Memorial Day? Any special traditions that you observe in your family?

Cheerios!
