Due to the holiday weekend, Decoration Day will be closed and we want to wish you and your family a happy & safe Memorial Day weekend!
But first, here is an interesting fact about the holiday:
May 30th was named “Declaration Day” a few short years after the Civil War. Why the end of May? Well, it could be that it was chosen because flowers were in full bloom everywhere.
With this, flowers were “decorated” on soldiers graves–eventually being known as “Decoration Day.” Sound familiar?
In 1976 when the previous owners opened the store they named it Decoration Day based on the history of decorating with flowers.
