You MAY Be Celebrating Some Of These Holidays This Month

Here’s our wish for you: MAY you have a wonderful month of MAY! There are several holidays this month that are noteworthy. As we patiently wait for the flowers and trees to bloom, at least we have these holidays to give us reasons to celebrate this month.

May 5th – Cinco De Mayo

Translates from Spanish to“the fifth of May”, this is a national holiday in Mexico and is celebrated by many

people in the US as well. This day celebrates the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, where the Mexican army defeated the French in an unlikely victory.

May 12th – Mother’s Day 
Mother’s Day is celebrated in America as a day to honor our mothers. Whether a biological mother or a motherly figure, celebrate the women in your life that helped you grow and showed you the love of a mother.

May 15th – Police Officer’s Memorial Day 
Police Officer’s Memorial Day is a day to honor all police officers who have been killed or injured in the line of duty. Recent research shows that 140-160 officers are killed in the line of duty each year. That is a lot of fathers, brothers, sisters and mothers not returning to their families each year. Let’s show our support and respect to our local officers this day and every day for the sacrifice they make for us.

May 18th – Visit Your Relatives Day

Family can be a source of joy and frustration, sometimes at the same time! But they are often the ones that are there for you through thick and thin. So, on this day, show your appreciation for your family and spend some quality time with them.

May 27th – Memorial Day
Memorial Day is a U.S. holiday remembering the U.S. men and women who died during military service. All U.S. federal flags are flown at half staff today in honor of those who gave their lives for our country. Many local cemeteries will be having Memorial Day services typically hosted by local VFW’s or American Legions.
