Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day!

Since I’m assuming most of my U.S. readers are busy hitting the beach, barbecuing, or just enjoying their day off, I thought instead of a full-blown post, I would share some of my favorite patriotic links from the internet:

1. If you don’t know what Memorial Day is here in the U.S., check out the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs webpage on the history and traditions for today.

2. American flag cakes seem to be all the rage for Memorial Day, usually because this is getting to be the perfect season for fruit, and who doesn’t love cake too? 🙂

Click on the image below to see a video of Martha Stewart teaching you how to decorate one…because if there is anyone who can teach us how to get it right, it’s Martha:

3. If Memorial Day had a Spirit Award, Will Ferrell would win it every time:

I hope you all have a great day whether you’re celebrating Memorial Day or not!

  1. I love the American Flag Cake! I made on for the fourth of July last year and it was a big hit. I don’t think I needed to see that picture of Will Ferrell though ;). Thanks for sharing!
