Memorial Day (or Decoration Day) is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering and honoring people who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. The holiday, which is currently observed every year on the last Monday of May, was previously observed on May 30 from 1868 to 1970. Most folks think of Memorial Day as the unofficial start of summer vacation in the US, while Labor Day marks its end on the first Monday of September. And lastly, many people visit cemeteries and memorials on Memorial Day, particularly to honor those who died in military service. We will have post-it notes for anyone wishing to jot down someone’s name in memoriam or a brief comment about their specialness.
