Nothing like the feeling of heading into a three-day holiday weekend, especially when you can tack a day off on the front end, making Thursday a virtual Friday, and Wednesday feels like… you get the idea.
Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial start of summer. If it seems like they always run the Indy 500 this weekend…yeah they do, for 107 years or so.
But, like most holidays we’ve come to take for granted, there’s more to the story. You probably know that Memorial Day honors those who lost their lives while serving in the military. That’s about all I knew about the holiday. Until I discovered some history.
