July graphic of a calendar page with red, white and blue ribbons on each side and fireworksJuly is the national month for celebrating grilling, picnics, hotdogs, baked beans, pickles, blueberries, and ice cream. It is also called National Culinary Arts Month and Lasagna Awareness Month. While wearing their masks many people get out and eat outside together so it is also called Sandwich Generation Month. Since so many people gather during the month of July it is also called Family Reunion Month.  Without a doubt, it is a great time to enjoy nature and consequently, we call July National Park and Recreation Month and we also call July Wild About Wildlife Month.

Memorial Day is observed on the final Monday of May. The holiday was originally known as Decoration Day, a time when Americans remembered those who died during the Civil War. During the 20th century, it was expanded to include all wars. Memorial Day was declared a federal holiday in 1968.
