The last Monday in the month of May each year is a holiday in the US known as Memorial Day. We use this day to remember and pay tribute to the countless brave American servicemen and women who have given their lives in service to our country.
While the spirit of this holiday is very solemn and respectful, there are a few points that almost always result in more fun being had than you might expect, read more about Memorial Day Sales:
- It’s at the end of May. For most of the northern US, this is when the weather really starts to get nice. Barbeques and picnics abound as friends gather to enjoy the springtime sun.
- It’s on a Monday, which means… LONG WEEKEND!
- Sales! As it’s roughly halfway through the fiscal year, many companies take this opportunity to roll out some sweet deals, especially because they know points 1 and 2 above could result in considerable foot traffic to their stores.
It’s this last point that’s most appealing to the OPAS international shopper (unless you feel like catching a flight and coming to a US barbeque! Let us know – we’ll set an extra place at the table.)
(Note: not actual OPAS employees. But they sure look like they’re having fun!)
