Memorial Day is a United States Federal Holiday that is observed on the last Monday of May. It was formerly known as Decoration Day. This holiday commemorates U.S. men and women who have died for their country during the war. Many people celebrate this by visiting cemeteries and memorials. Another tradition is to fly the U.S. flag at half-staff from dawn until noon local time. Some people place an American flag upon each grave site of those who died during the war. Memorial Day is also a time for picnics, barbecues, family gatherings, and even sport events.

So, have fun on Memorial Day.
