Remember Lost Loved Ones on Memorial Day with a Floral Arrangement from Carithers Flowers

Memorial Day unofficially marks the start of summer, and in the midst of the cookouts, pool parties, and friendly softball games, many of us will be paying respects to our nation’s war dead, as well as family members who have passed on. Many families take this opportunity to place flowers on the graves of their loved ones.   History of Memorial Day General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, officially proclaimed May 30, 1868, as “Memorial Day” in honor of those who died fighting in the Civil War. On this day, observers placed flowers on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. After World War I, the holiday changed to honor Americans who died fighting in any war. In 1971, Congress designated the last Monday in May as a federal holiday. Today, the meaning and traditions of Memorial Day have been adapted to include remembering and honoring any and all deceased, not just those who have died in service to their country.   Flowers as Tradition Decorating gravesites with plants, wreaths, and floral arrangements on Memorial Day is a tradition that many families observe. A variety of flowers can characterize the [...]
