There are a few important facts about Memorial Day. It used to be called “Decoration Day”. It started after the Civil War to honor the fallen Union soldiers of the Civil War, when women and kids decorated the Confederate graves. In the last century, it became a day to remember the men and women who died while serving in any of the armed forces. It is indeed an important day for us to remember those who have served and died for our country.
It’s also a day many Americans take as a holiday and it’s the unofficial start of summer when you can start wearing white (the end, of course, is Labor Day). Popular Memorial Day activities include parades, barbecues, picnics and the Indianapolis 500.
