What is Memorial Day in the United States

According to the United States government, Memorial Day is celebrated on the last Monday in May and is intended to honor the memory of those who have lost their lives serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.

In its beginnings, Memorial Day was dedicated solely to those who died in the Civil War. However, after the First World War, the date was changed and since then all the people who have lost their lives serving their country in combat have been remembered. It was in the year 1971 when Congress decreed on the last Monday of May as a federal holiday.

During the Memorial Day, a large number of people visit cemeteries and military monuments to lay flowers, flags and other decorations on the graves of fallen soldiers, who were their loved ones in life. In various cities and towns throughout the country parades are also held which usually include the participation of veterans, active military and community organizations.
