Here in the U. S. Monday, of course, is Memorial Day—a day set aside to remember those who gave their lives in service to our country. Celebratory parades and somber wreath-laying services can be found in almost every community, and both can be a wonderful way to express our gratitude and honor the sacrifices made.
Another way to honor those who have served is by displaying our flag. Not only is the flag a symbol of our country, it’s a festive way to brighten up your house for summertime.
Despite needing larger bunting beneath the windows and bigger flags (and more greenery!) in our urns, the Mister and I do like displaying the red, white, and blue for Memorial Day. And, we pull it all back out for the Fourth of July and Veteran’s Day, too!
Do you decorate in patriotic fashion?
