Memorial Day

Memorial Day is always on the last Monday in May. It is an American holiday during which we honor soldiers who have died serving their country. Friends and relatives visit cemeteries and put wreaths, flowers, and flags on the graves.

This day also marks the beginning of outdoor activities such as barbecues and family picnics. It is a federal holiday, so schools, banks, and government buildings are closed on Memorial Day.
