Happy Memorial Day

Thank You to All Who Served. Happy Memorial Day from Everyone at BlueBox Rental. Did You Know: The holiday originated as Decoration Day after the American Civil War in 1868, when the Grand Army of the Republic, an organization of Union veterans founded in Decatur, Illinois established it as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. By the 20th century, competing Union and Confederate holiday traditions merged and Memorial Day eventually extended to honor all Americans who died while in military service. “It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.”   – Gen. George S. Patton

Happy Mother’s Day From Blue Box

From all of us at Blue Box Rental, we wish every mom a Happy Mother’s Day! Did You Know: The modern holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. Her campaign to make “Mother’s Day” a recognized holiday in the United States began in 1905, the year her mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, died. Ann Jarvis had been a peace activist who cared for wounded soldiers on both sides of the American Civil War, and created Mother’s Day Work Clubs to address public health issues. Anna Jarvis wanted to honor her mother by continuing the work she started and to set aside a day to honor all mothers, because she believed that they were “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world.” In 1914, Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation designating Mother’s Day, held on the second Sunday in May, as a national holiday to honor mothers. Jarvis’ holiday was adopted by other countries, and it is now celebrated all over the world.
