Bookmark Dump: Profane onesies, crafty flip flops, and outdoor reading nooks

May 27, 2016


Why does everyone consider Memorial Day a holiday to kick off summer if it’s such a somber day? Where did the idea to celebrate even come from? Commercials advertising celebrating the day with sales, neighborhood parties and bbq’s. It’s more for reflecting than celebrating, right? No hard feelings to anyone celebrating, we’ll be bbq’ing too, it just seems confusing. I know if I lost someone in the line of duty, I wouldn’t want to celebrate that day or hear people say “happy” memorial day to me. Just sayin.
