Memorial Day is Monday, May 28 in the United States. This is a holiday that began after the American Civil War as a way to recognize our fallen soldiers, people who have fought for our freedom. Americans, like me, still celebrate this every year. We put up American flags and get together with friends and family on this extra special day. Some people even have barbeques and pool parties because it’s also the unofficial first day of summer!
This year my whole family will spend time together on Memorial Day. It will be really nice to be able to be with my parents and brother to give thanks to all the soldiers.
Have a great day!
