What is Memorial Day?

Memorial Day is a public holiday held in the United States on the last Monday of May every year.

It was held on May 29 (Mon) this year in 2023.

On this day, it is set to memorialize the deceased soldiers and thank them for their sacrifice and service.

The Memorial Day began in 1868 as the Decoration Day to memorialize the soldiers who died in the Civil War. Initially, it was limited to federal soldiers in the Civil War, but it came to include all US military soldiers who later died in other wars.

Memorial Day has events and ceremonies in various places in Japan. It is common to visit the national cemetery or a local graveyard, turn flowers on the grave of soldiers, and to have a memorial speech and parade. In addition, the American flag is also held on a semi -flag*.

Memorial Day is a holiday and many people spend time with family and friends. In addition, this day may mean the beginning of summer, and leisure activities such as barbecue and picnics are also performed.

However, Memorial Day is not just a holiday, but an important day to praise the sacrifice of soldiers.

*Half flags are raised about half from the tip of the flagpole to express condolences.
