Last Monday of May is the Memorial Day in USA! This holiday originated after the American Civil War to commemorate soldiers who died in the Civil War, later on it was extended to honour all Americans who have died in the military service. On this day people visit cemeteries and memorials and place American Flags and flowers on the graves of men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. This is why this day was also called "Decoration Day"

Unofficially this day is considered to be the start on summer and summer vacation season. So go outside this long weekend, enjoy the sun and the beginning of the summer.
