In honor of this weekend in which the country will celebrate Memorial Day, we here at Quality Plumbing Services would like to provide you with some interesting facts about this day of remembrance. The origins of Memorial Day date back to the Civil War and it was originally dubbed Decoration Day due to veterans decorating their fallen comrades' graves with flowers, wreaths, and flags. The day of remembrance was also originally held on May 30th and it was not until 1967 when federal law declared “Memorial Day” the official name and set its date to the last Monday in May. There are certain customs held on Memorial Day created to honor the fallen men and women who have given their lives for our great country. These customs include flying the flag at half staff until noon which is then raised to full staff at sunset. In 2000, Congress established a National Moment of Remembrance, which asks for a pause at 3:00 PM from all Americans to have a moment of silence for those who have fallen defending our country. Memorial Day is celebrated by all Americans across the entire nation, with everyone having their own personal ways of celebrating, but it is always nice to remember where its roots came from. Quality Plumbing Services hopes everyone has a wonderful, safe weekend, and we ask that everyone take a moment to honor the fallen heroes of our great country.
