Four Ways to Celebrate Memorial Day as a Family

Read the full article on Kmart Community

What traditions does your family celebrate on Memorial Day? This year, make it a memorable occasion as you remember the military heroes who gave their lives for your freedoms. Then gather with friends, family members and veterans to celebrate the holiday that’s been a national tradition for over a century and a half.

Many communities hold parades and services, and you can take your family to those events. Wear patriotic colors, wave flags and salute the flag and the veterans who march. If possible, march in the parade or play in a patriotic band as you remember the fallen heroes.

After the ceremonies are over, invite your friends over for the first picnic of the season.

In addition to celebrating members of the Armed Forces, Memorial Day marks the beginning of the summer vacation season. Most pools and lakes open for the season this weekend, so pack up the family and go swimming.
