Recently, getting a flag for our home to honor Memorial Day this year, due to a dear close friend's passing... in the packet was a nice card listing all the days being appropriate for flying our country's flag. I've asked lotsa friends what days or how many days they thought and most thought it to be 4 or 5 days a year it should be waving. However, it turns out everyday is prefect, with proper handling and lighting of the flag, but these days in addition are completely acceptable..... and encouraged. Here's the list off my packet and thought I'd pass it along for anyone who wants to do it also.
