Memorial Day with Mar Soreli's Friulane Shoes

Memorial Day with Mar Soreli's Friulane Shoes


Memorial Day is the last Monday of May - a bit of history.

This day originated during the American Civil War when citizens would place flowers on the grave of soldiers who had died during the war and was known as Decoration Day.

After World War 1 the day came to be observed in honor of all those who died in all U S wars, and so the name was changed from Decoration Day to Memorial Day.

As well as family and friends of the fallen visiting the graves, volunteers visit cemeteries to place American flags on the graves.

    To honor United States service members who have died defending their country, the North American public use this day as a family day, a patriotic time for members of the family to celebrate and enjoy each other's company. While doing so, in this relaxing atmosphere, you might be a host of a BBQ doing the family preparations, wearing your wonderful Venetian Friulane Shoes.


Events occur over Memorial Day weekend, ranging from community events to sporting events. Many towns have parades. Memorial Day is a federal holiday when all non-essential Government offices will close, schools, businesses, and many other organizations also close. Most public transit systems do not run on their regular schedule.

You may be going to a parade, have a short vacation, to a BBQ, or have a picnic, many will dress in patriotic red, white, and blue, however as most associate Memorial Day with signaling the start of summer, you can opt for bright colors. Our Mar Soreli gondolier shoes are great for boating, when enjoying an outing on a lake, these furlane shoes are very versatile when it comes to festive and family-orientated events.
