Memorial Day is a federal holiday observed every year on the last Monday in May. It honors those who died serving the United States military, also seen as the start of summer and vocation season. People will attend picnics, BBQs, sporting events, and spending time with family. What do people do? And how will you spend this holiday weekend?
Visiting Cemeteries and Memorials
During the Memorial Day weekend, many families visit war memorials and military cemeteries to honor the dead veterans especially if they include relatives. At Washington, D.C.’s Arlington Cemetery, members of the U.S. Army and volunteers place small United States flags at exactly the same spot at each tombstone. The nationwide display of patriotism is touching and inspiring.
Wear White Clothing
For the fashion conscious, Memorial Day is seen as acceptable to wear white clothing, particularly shoes from Memorial Day until Labor Day. However, fewer and fewer people follow this rule and many wear white apparel throughout the year. But instead of white shoes, you can choose the white Sport-Tek Dri-Mesh Polo in honor of the holiday. This polo will keep you comfortable all day no matter what activates you are in.
Family reunions are frequently held on this holiday weekend. Extended families gather to eat, barbecue, play games, and enjoy the company of their loved ones. So you’d better choose a t-shirt that is soft and wicks away quickly, for example the District Juniors 60/40 Tunic Tee or Tultex Men’s Blend Tee, either will make you satisfied. Most people open their swimming pools for the first time of the year as Memorial Day also ushers in those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer. Of course these t-shirts are fit for summer essentials.
Many people hold picnics with family members at this time. But please don’t forget to bring a blanket when going out. This Colorado Clothing Waterproof RecPak Blanket is great for picnics, sports or outdoor concerts, thanks to waterproof black polyester backing. It folds up easily into a carry tote with an external patch pocket for embroidery, and can also be rolled and secured by an elastic strap. Its size is 50” x 60”, big enough for certain members.
There are also sports events of all kinds during this weekend. Then you are in need of a team t-shirt. And the Sport-Tek Ladies V-Neck PosiCharge Competitor Tee is just ready for you. Lightweight, roomy and highly breathable, these moisture-wicking, value-priced tees feature PosiCharge technology to lock in color and prevent logos from fading. What’s more, Concerts and sports typically have fireworks displays when the main event has ended.
