Every country in the world has lost men and women in some kind of Armed Forces. When does your country celebrate or mourn their deaths? (Optional)
Memorial Day is today, the last Monday in May. This is the day we remember our fallen heroes. It’s a bit touchy for me. I’m one of those people who cringes every time someone wishes me a “Happy Memorial Day!” To me, this is like saying, “Enjoy your uncle’s funeral!” or something. They mean well, no doubt. I’m not suggesting we all watch war movies and visit cemeteries, by all means, enjoy the day off work and eat your barbecue, plant your flowers, make your patriotic fruit dessert, but Happy just makes me cringe.
What is your favorite holiday or holidays?
Fourth of July
How do you celebrate that holiday?
This varies. Typically, we go to the parade in the morning, I cook a lot in the afternoon, we eat, and then we go downtown for the fireworks show at night. I. love. fireworks.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am full of gratitude from last week. Moo basically won the 6th grade, we had date night, news of the best kind came along, I got a lot done, the weather was balanced — it was a great week!
This week I’m looking forward to Taco Tuesday with our friends and I’m sure I will get more done around the house and in the yard.
