Memorial Day

Memorial Day was formerly known as Decoration Day. It remembers the men and women of the U.S who gave their life while in military service for the country. Most people observe this day by visiting memorials and cemetery. Another tradition is to fly the U.S. flag at half-staff from dawn until noon local time. Aside from commemorating those people who gave their life for the country, people also used it too as a time for picnic, gatherings, family reunion and sports event. Personally, i like the memorial day because i know summer is on it's way. Oh before i forget in southern area memorial day is also called decoration day. why? it's because they use memorial day as the time to decorate grave of all family members, not only those who was in military. The observe decoration day on Sunday before the actual memorial day. In addition to national observances, many individual communities hold memorial observance for fallen soldiers who were from that town by having a ceremony in a church or town memorial park. It is common for fire and police departments to remember and honor members lost in the line of duty. Towns also has some memorial day parade which in many cases after the parade they hold a town picnic barbecue at a local park. But again to me, im just excited finally summer is on it's way, goodbye freezing...
