Memorial Day is a designated day for people to pay tribute to the martyred soldiers by honoring and celebrating their selfless services to the country. The Memorial Day is meant to celebrate soldiers and men of the American Armed Forces who had fought for the country. The Memorial Day is celebrated on the last Monday in May and this marks the beginning of the summer vacation season in the United States.
The celebration is initially meant for the soldiers who died during the Civil War and later extended to every military man who died in the course of their duties to the country. These fallen heroes are celebrated in diverse ways. One of the ways is by flying the flag of the United States. Also, you can celebrate them by writing a 'thank you letter' to any known veteran or any current member of the United States Armed Forces. Another way to celebrate Memorial Day is by visiting and decorating the graves of those fallen soldiers, that's why Memorial Day is also known as Decoration Day
