Here are some Memorial Day sales that have already started.

Barbeques, sunshine and time with family. Memorial Day is already near, as the month of May slowly comes to a close.

This year the beloved and widely celebrated holiday falls on Monday, May 31.

Once known as Decoration Day, the holiday officially became a federal celebration in 1971 to honor the men and women who have died while serving the U.S. military. Historians say it is unclear where the tradition originated but early records show that one of the first Memorial Day gatherings was organized by a group of formerly enslaved people after the surrender of the confederacy in 1865. 

Over the years, the holiday has also evolved into a pre-summer celebration observed by Americans across the country. And some retailers launch markdowns on some of their products in observance of the day, too.

Here are a few early Memorial Day sales that have already gone into effect that you shouldn't miss out on.
