While everyone loves a long weekend, Memorial Day is a time to honor and mourn military personnel who have died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. It started in 1868, shortly after the Civil War, when it was formalized by a "Memorial Day Order" issued by Grand Army of the Republic Commander-in-Chief John A. Logan to commemorate the sacrifices of those soldiers. Memorial Day became an official federal holiday in 1971. While cook-outs and parties are common this weekend, on Monday, the cities and towns across South Florida will remember those who gave their last full measure of devotion through events, gatherings, ceremonies, or parades. Here are some free local events to attend.

Palm Beach County did you know Halloween history? The holiday’s history is less about fun and more about religious superstitions. Halloween began about 2,000 years as an ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain. Samhain signaled the end of summer and was held on November 1st. It was considered the beginning of the new year. 

The end of summer meant the end of the harvest and the beginning of winter. The Celtic people believed that, at this time of year, the dead could pass into the world of the living. So, to protect themselves from evil spirits, people would dress up as evil creatures in the hopes of scaring the bad spirits. The Celts also built large bonfires, or “bone fires,” where they burned crops and animals as a sacrifice to their gods.
