Memorial Day

Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, it marks the beginning of the summer season.

Originally known as Decoration Day!  

When we were kids my dad & mom would pile all of us in his Chevrolet to go on a day long trip to Dayton, Ohio to visit relatives and to decorate the graves of our family. There were no super highways back then!

Mom would pack her version of a picnic lunch: stuffed cabbage rolls cooked and toted in an iron kettle; fried kibbi patties, tabouleh, plain white bread and seasonal fruit.
