Memorial Day is celebrated in America as a way of remembering and honoring those who have died in the line of duty.Sometime during the late Civil War, friends and family started decorating the graves of loved ones that died in battle. Originally, Memorial Day was called Decoration Day. This tradition has continued over time  and other groups have helped to honor all those that have fought in battles. So take a moment during your long weekend of bbq-ing and remember that it is much more than an extra day off, it is taking the time to  REMEMBER those that gave their lives , and to appreciate Service men and women of the past who fought with everything so that we could have the FREEDOM that we have today!Have a SAFE holiday from all of us at REALIST HOMES!
