When is Memorial Day 2022?
Decoration Day, more recently known as Memorial Day, was officially established in May of 1868, three years after the end of the United States Civil War. Memorial day was created as "...a time for the [United States] to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers."¹ As such, the last Monday in May is dedicated to remembering the men and women who gave their lives and fought to secure and preserve our freedom.
In 2022, Memorial Day falls on Monday, May 30th and is considered both a Federal and Business Holiday in the United States. Expect banks, schools, state and federal offices, as well as many private sector businesses to be closed.
Redcort's offices will be closed on Monday, May 30th, 2022 in observance of Memorial Day. We will return to normal business hours on Tuesday, May 31st. See our Federal and Business holiday calendars for more information.
