Hello, today is Memorial Dayin the United States. Memorial Day is a holiday we celebrate the last Monday of May.It was created to honor the fallen Union soldiers in the American Civil War. Nowadays, we remember fallen soldiers from any war or family members we have lost.
Memorial Day is commonly known as the start of the summer season. We like to get together with family members to do outdoor activities such as barbecuing, having picnics, and going to beach. Sometimes, I like going camping, but I did not do that this year. Perhaps I will go camping for Labor Day, which is the first Monday of September.
In addition to remembrance, Memorial Day is also a time for picnics, family gatherings, and sporting events. Some Americans view Memorial Day as the unofficial beginning of summer and Labor Day as the unofficial end of the season. The national Click it or ticket campaign ramps up beginning Memorial Day weekend, noting the beginning of the most dangerous season for auto accidents and other safety related incidents. The USAF “101 Critical days of summer” also begin on this day as well. Some Americans use Memorial Day to also honor any family members who have died, not just servicemen.
I like Memorial Day because I don’t have to work :)
