Way back when I was a little girl, this would have been just a weekend - not a holiday one. The holiday even had a different name and fell on the weekday that it happened to be on during the current year. It was called Decoration Day back then and I remember everyone hoping the peonies would be in bloom for that day to decorate the graves of the veterans and also those of other loved ones gone before. Since then, it has become one of the holidays that has a variable date to enable people to have a nice three day weekend at the start of summer as has Labor Day also being adjusted to give a nice long weekend at the end of summer. So here is a very pretty card for "Decoration Day".
Have a great weekend. Stop by http://thebestheartsarecrunchy.blogspot.com/ to see other postcards--maybe not ones for Decoration Day, but great ones regardless. Thanks, Beth, for being our hostess!
