Does it seem like Memorial Day falls early this year, or have you completely lost all sense of time? Though you, like thousands of others, may not be perceiving time normally, Memorial Day does fall early this year. Memorial Day, observed in the United States, honors those who died in service of the U.S. military. It was first observed after the Civil War; during that period it was called Decoration Day. Over time, Memorial Day became a way to remember those who died fighting in all wars and not just the Civil War. Despite its long history, Memorial Day wasn’t made a federal holiday until 1971.
Like many federal holidays, Memorial Day has become a reason for people to host family gatherings and cookouts. It has also become an excuse for retailers to hold sales. The end of May is one time of year when you can get great deals on just about any item of clothing or appliance you’ve been wanting to buy.
Of course, this year’s Memorial Day celebrations are going to look a little different for many people as we continue to social distance. Regardless of how you plan to observe the holiday, though, there are still plenty of deals to be had online.
