Memorial Day



Each year, Memorial Day falls on the last Monday in May, and this year it’s on Monday, May 30, 2022.

Here are some fast facts about Memorial Day:

Memorial Day was originally referred to as Decoration Day

Shortly after the Civil War, General John A. Logan called for a “Decoration Day” to honor those who died during the bloody struggle.

For many years, Memorial Day was observed on May 30

Memorial Day wasn’t always observed on the last Monday in May. For a long time, it was observed on May 30. It wasn’t until Congress passed the Uniform Holiday Act in 1968 that Memorial Day was officially recognized on the last Monday in May. This law went into effect in 1971.

There is a time set aside on Memorial Day for national remembrance

In case you didn’t know, the National Moment Remembrance Act sets aside 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day as a moment to pause during the day.

There is a certain way to hang the American Flag on Memorial Day

the VA website says On Memorial Day the flag should be flown at half-staff from sunrise until noon only, then raised briskly to the top of the staff until sunset, in honor of the nation’s battle heroes.

Sun Prints

I have fond memories of elementary school art classes learning about cyanotype and creating art projects with the images we made. The Sun Prints Designer Series Paper cyanotype style of the DSP makes fun backgrounds that just need a sentiment to make great cards. I used a Sentiment from Patted Geraniums and the die from the bundle.
