What's the deal with all the flags?

Our town always puts out flags for holidays like Memorial Day, Veteran's Day, Flag Day, etc. Well, the flags went out on Saturday morning and they are still out. I don't know if they took them down last night and put them back this morning, but they have never been left over night before. Any ideas?

  • Some people do not leave them out over night out of respect for the flag. If you leave it up at nightly is suppose to be lit with a light out of respect for the flag.
