Memorial Day was originally observed in 1866, the year after the end of the Civil War. Although it was known as Decoration Day for many years, in 1971, Memorial Day was made an official national holiday. On Monday, May 29, the custom continues, and Americans have an opportunity to show respect and gratitude to fallen heroes - as well as to show compassion to family members who may still grieve the loss . Boyd's Flowers is privileged and honored to help you to show your gratitude by delivering beautiful Memorial Day flowers and arrangements.
There is a Difference: Although the two days share patriotism, parades, and decorations of red, white, and blue - Memorial and Veteran's Day serve different purposes. While Veteran's Day offers recognition to all who served in the military, including those still alive. Memorial Day is set aside to remember those who perished in service to their country.
