Happy Memorial Day

I want to wish everyone a Happy Memorial Day. Our plans are to pay tribute to our fallen hero's at a memorial service near our home. Everyone at Royal Rugrats wishes you a happy and healthy holiday weekend.

I found a site WEBSITE CLICK HERE for kids to help explain and celebrate memorial day.

About Memorial Day
Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day. It is a day of remembrance for those who have died in the service of our nation.
Waterloo N.Y. was officially declared the birthplace of Memorial Day by President Lyndon Johnson in May 1966, but it's difficult to prove the origins of the day. There is also evidence that a women's group in the South decorated graves before the end of the Civil War. In either case, Memorial Day has had numerous starts due to the human need to honor the dead. Though some people think it's a day to honor any and all dead, Memorial Day is intended to honor those who have given their all in service to our country.

Some craft ideas for kids...
