Family Vacation Ideas For This Memorial Day
#1 History Lesson
The best part about celebrating Memorial Day is the history lesson for appreciation. Teach kids why we celebrate this tremendous day of gratitude to pay thanks.
Memorial Day is a national federal holiday celebrated in the United States for remembering those who died while serving this country in armed forces. What’s cool about Memorial Day is that it is always observed the same time every year on the last Monday in May.
Did you know that Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day and was formed after the American Civil War to actually commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the war. Not until the 20th century was Memorial Day formed to extend this honor to all Americans who died while serving in the military.
American Flag Honor
Plan a trip on Sunday to visit cemeteries and memorials in town to honor those who died while serving in the military. Have kids bring an American flag and place on a grave in the national cemetery.
