Memorial Day is quickly creeping up on us and it’s time to get ready for those fabulous barbecues which unofficially kick off the summer. For many Memorial Day Weekend is the time when gas prices rise about 20 cents per gallon and we don’t have to go to work, but I try to at remember a little what the holiday really means.
Memorial Day started as a scattering of Civil War observances whereby people would decorate the graves of fallen Civil War soldiers. Decoration Day, as it was known, was rather grass roots and different cemeteries and outposts were free to observe as they choose but it was a very big deal in the late 1860′s because every town and city in the country was touched by the war.
It wasn’t until World War I when fallen soldiers of all American Wars were recognized. Memorial Day became an official holiday in 1971 and has become one of the most celebrated holiday’s in the country. Keep in mind that Veterans day is meant to honor all military veterans, both living and dead. Memorial Day is to remember those who were lost in service to their country.
The most popular way to celebrate Memorial Day is no doubt, the family barbecue. Barbecue and Memorial Day have no official relationship other than people love to get out their grills and fire them up on the first long weekend of the spring. For whatever reason, it seems to be the time when grill is dusted off and prepared for the long season ahead which seems to end on Labor Day. The time between is when more grilling accessories are sold and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Having the hottest grilling accessory to hit the market in the last two years, Grill Glove is ready to meet the demand of a nation that is hungry and, lazy. Yep, I said it. Nobody likes to clean up after a cookout and we certainly aren’t judging anyone. We just like to point out that we have a solution for the lazy griller.
