None of the above!
This day. Memorial Day, is for honoring and celebrating our veterans and all the freedoms they have given us. The grand old waste of time days does none of this.
Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for those who have fallen during service to our country. As we commemorate the soldiers we have lost, as well as wounded soldiers, bereaved families, orphans and widows, let's not forget the meaning and traditions behind this sacred holiday.
Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day, as its purpose was to visit cemeteries and place flowers on the graves of soldiers who had died in the Civil War. In 1882, people started calling it "Memorial Day," and by the time World Wars I and II had ended, it had evolved into a day to honor all fallen military men and women, no matter what war they fought in.
THIS is what we should be celebrating on this day of honor.
