Happy Memorial Day! 

We hope you enjoy your day off with family & friends! But let's not forget the true meaning of this day...read on to learn about Memorial Day history.

We did our research and found the following facts surrounding Memorial Day:

  • Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military.
  • Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.
  • Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades.
  • Each year on Memorial Day, a national moment of remembrance takes place at 3:00 p.m. local time.

We at Pixa would like to thank all those who have served our country. 

Now go enjoy your three day weekend!
