What is Memorial Day?
Memorial Day (also known as Decoration Day) is a federal holiday in the US. In every state, people who died serving in the US Armed Forces are remembered and honored. This holiday is usually observed every last Monday in May. This year, it is going to be May 27. Apart from honoring the people who served in the army, it is often considered the start of the season of summer vacation. In other words, it is a holiday where people should give their thanks to the fallen soldiers, but also be grateful for being able to live in peace and prosperity in the US. There are certain traditions in some parts of the US that involve visiting graves of the fallen soldiers and honoring them by placing American flags on their graves. This is usually conducted by Memorial Day volunteers.
