Chill and Reflect

Create a cozy space at home to unwind and reflect on Memorial Day. Think comfy cushions, soft lighting, and a playlist that sets the mood. Adding natural scents like lavender can enhance relaxation. Somerset, New Jersey, our home base, has a rich history that adds depth to your reflections. Did you know Somerset played a key role in the American Revolutionary War? The Battle of Bound Brook, where American troops faced off against the British in 1777, took place right here. Remembering local history makes the day even more meaningful.

Set up a small display with photos or memorabilia from local history or your family’s own military history. This personal touch can make your reflection time even more meaningful. As you relax, think about the freedoms we enjoy today and the sacrifices made by so many to secure them. Pair this with some soothing background music and your favorite herbal tea to create a holistic experience that nurtures both your mind and spirit.

Stories and S’mores

Gathering your friends and family around a fire pit for stories and s’mores is a quintessential Memorial Day activity. As you toast marshmallows and make gooey s’mores, share stories about the heroes who’ve shaped our lives. This activity is not just about the treats, but also about the connections and memories you create together.

Let’s spice things up with a funny story from Memorial Day history. During World War II, a soldier named Joe Gans from New Jersey wrote home about how he and his buddies recreated a Memorial Day picnic while stationed overseas. With limited supplies, they used their helmets as makeshift grills to cook up some hot dogs and s’mores. It was a small taste of home that brought a lot of joy and laughter to the troops. Sharing such stories adds humor and warmth, reminding us of the resilience of our service members.

Locally, the Franklin Township Memorial Day Parade is a great way to honor heroes and soak up community spirit. Parades like these are filled with music, floats, and marching bands, making them a fantastic way to celebrate.

Embrace the Outdoors

Spending time in nature is a perfect way to celebrate Memorial Day. Whether you’re hiking, having a beach day, or just hanging out in your backyard, being outdoors is a great way to recharge. Studies show that being in nature reduces stress and improves mood. So, plan some outdoor activities to make the most of the long weekend.

For a fun local twist, explore the Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park in Somerset. This park offers hiking, biking, and kayaking, and it’s steeped in history. The canal, built in the early 19th century, played a crucial role in New Jersey’s commerce. Walking along the canal, you can almost hear the echoes of history and imagine life during its heyday.

If you prefer a relaxed outdoor experience, set up a picnic in your backyard or at a local park. Pack a basket with tasty snacks and refreshing beverages, and enjoy the fresh air. Nature has a way of grounding us and making us feel more connected.

Get Artsy

Let your creative side shine! Break out the paints, sketchbooks, or whatever art supplies you love. Creating something unique is a great way to express your thoughts and feelings. Pair your artistic session with some calming tunes and natural scents to keep the inspiration flowing.

Here’s a fun activity: host a mini art session with friends or family. Everyone can create something that reflects their feelings about Memorial Day. It’s a great way to bond and share your creations. Plus, it’s a fun and relaxing way to spend the day.
