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.
