On behalf of the entire L&M Orthodontics team, Id like to wish all of our patients, family, and friends a happy, safe and relaxing Memorial Day weekend! Hopefully this blog finds many of you outside enjoying great weather (like the last half of this Sunday), great food, and great times. Although it is always great having a day off (and dont we all need it!?!) I still believe it is important for us all, as Americans, to recognize this holiday for its significance as well.
Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nations service. In our celebration this weekend, we are observing an American ritual dating back to May 30, 1868, when General John Logan, in his General Order No. 11, ordered flowers placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. Since then the observance has changed, but I feel it is important that we all still take a moment in recognition of those that died to keep our country the amazing place it is today.
On a lighter note, Memorial Day is also the unofficial start of summer. To all of you reading this entry, let me wish you and/or your children an easy finish to the school year and an awesome summer season. What about you?What are you up to this Memorial Day weekend? Whether you are headed out of town, visiting family and friends, or just relaxing around the house, wed love to hear about it! Im sure were all looking forward to some fun in the sun! Be safe, and well see you at your next appointment!
