Growing up back East, Memorial Day always set the tone for summer. You could finally wear white after Memorial Day, you changed your winter bedding from winter to spring, and you moved your summer clothes up from the basement and put your winter clothes away (usually in a cedar chest) until after Labor Day. It gave you permission to transition. In California every day is summer, here people where white all year round. It took me five or six years to give in to wearing white after Memorial Day however, I still follow the rule when I am in Connecticut or Boston. What are your thoughts on wearing white? Do you think the rule should still apply or do you think it’s regional?
Where ever you are in the country, I hope you have a fabulous Memorial Day weekend and let us not forget what this holiday is all about.
For those that have gone before us, I honor you and all that you have done for “US”.
May you rest in peace.
