Memorial Day

25 May 2015

For readers from outside of the U.S., today is celebrated as Memorial Day in the United States.

Cities and towns across the United States host Memorial Day parades each year, often incorporating military personnel and members of veterans’ organizations. Some of the largest parades take place in Chicago, New York and Washington, D.C. Americans also observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries and war memorials. On a less somber note, many people throw parties and barbecues on the holiday, perhaps because it unofficially marks the beginning of summer.

  1. And the last day in May so grave flowers would be in bloom across the lower 48.
