Memorial Day Weekend

0 Comments

I do apologize for posting this a day after the actual holiday. I remember waking up an hour earlier yesterday, I was even able to do the groceries at exactly 10am with baby yesterday and was done most of my chores by 11:45am. I even finished folding laundry in the afternoon. It’s a bit of a blur after 12pm to 3pm and even after 4pm. I did take a nap around 2:30pm, or at least I tried to. Anyway, enough with yesterday’s day and let’s learn about Memorial Day Weekend:

It’s been said that this American holiday is celebrated by remembering and honoring fallen soldiers. People may do this by visiting a lost loved one’s burial site and decorating it with American colors. Many cities hold parades for the armed forces.
