A man's country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle and patriotism is loyalty to that principle.
Every last Monday of May, we take a moment to remember those who gave their lives defending American ideals and freedoms. Usually, that involves visiting your family and friends and having a picnic or a barbecue together. This occasion is a perfect opportunity to give your loved ones carefully chosen Memorial Day gifts and show them you care.
Memorial Day has its roots in Decoration Day — a 19th-century tradition of honoring those who fell during the Civil War. As the 19th century turned into the 20th, America took part in World War I, after which it was decided that Memorial Day would honor everyone who died serving the country in every war. That includes World War II, The Korean War, Vietnam War, and wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
At first, Memorial Day was observed on May 30th, as Decoration Day originally was. But then Congress decided to move it to the last Monday of May so that all federal employees would have a three-day weekend.
On Memorial Day, people often visit cemeteries and watch parades hosted by their hometowns or cities. Many wear red poppies — a tradition that started after World War I in memory of those who fell in wars. However, since Memorial Day also marks the unofficial start of summer, many Americans throw parties and visit their families.
