Memorial Day 2014

It was Monday, Memorial Day of 2014, here in the United States today (a national holiday honoring fallen soldiers in the country’s wars); also the considered the ‘unofficial’ start of summer.  We still have cool temperatures here in Seattle, so it always comes as a surprise to me to realize in May that the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere is less than a month away!  Check out this infographic that explains the history of Memorial Day here in the USA that I found on-line.
