On this Memorial Day weekend I am reminded of what the holiday is truly all about…
Harry & David says it’s a time to delight in a mix of sweet treats and savory snacks
AYSO soccer suggested I “celebrate” Memorial Day with up to 70% off soccer supplies… A day with Memorial in the title never seems like much of a celebration so this was refreshing
The promo code king was Zazzle.. I don’t know what they sell but I got their email and check out THEIR promo code “land of da free”. Nice Zazzle.
Best Buy and Crate and Barrel both sent me their Memorial Day sales too
Target offered me Memorial Day savings but at least I guess they showed a very stylish girl holding an American flag in tribute to fashionable deals
M&M’s offered me discounts too and they gave me a candy Uncle Sam to tell me what a great deal they have.
I got ads for suits and kids clothes and vacations and more. I heard one car ad on the radio where a little girl stated “dad says Memorial Day is another day to be able to go car shopping”. By now you’ve figured out where I’m going with this. Memorial Day is a federal holiday to recognize the men and women who died while serving in the branches of our armed forces. Surely it’s more than barbecues and chocolate and washing machines and soccer supplies. Yes it has become known as the unofficial beginning of summer but let’s not forget it is so much more… Thank you to the troops. Find me on Facebook at dadmissionsthebook.
