Do you consider yourself blessed to live in the United States of America? I sure do! 

We live under favorable circumstances and have freedoms that many other people in countries do not have. I am grateful for those that put themselves in harms way to protect our beautiful country. Every time I hear the Star Spangled Banner play I get goosebumps. 

One thing that I have loved is displaying a flag in our yard for all to see!

Here are a list of days that you can show your patriotism:

January 1 New Year's Day

Third Monday in January Martin Luther King Day

January 20 Inauguration Day

February 12 Lincoln's Birthday

Third Monday in February President's Day

Easter Sunday

Second Sunday in May Mother's Day

May 15 Peace Officers Memorial Day (half-staff)

Third Saturday in May Armed Forces Day

Last Monday in May Memorial Day (half-staff until noon)

June 14 Flag Day and Army Day

Third Sunday in June Father's Day

July 4 Independence Day

First Monday in September Labor Day

September 11 Patriot Day (half-staff)

September 17 Constitution Day and Air Force Day

Last Sunday in September Gold Star Mothers' Day

Second Monday in October Columbus Day

October 27 Navy Day

First Tuesday in November National Election Day

November 10 Marine Corps Day

November 11 Veteran's Day

Fourth Thursday in November Thanksgiving Day

December 7 Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day (half-staff)

December 25 Christmas Day


Displaying/flying a flag is one of the easiest ways to show your patriotism. But you don't have to stop there! You can also thank a veteran, offer service in your community, or pay your respects at the cemetery. Since this is an election year, you can vote! And what about all of the time leading up to the election. Is it possible to talk politics without a heated debate? :)
