Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Memorial Day 2020 occurs on Monday, May 25. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings, and participating in parades. Today our reality has changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and we may not be able to do some of the things that we have done in the past. Nevertheless, it does not change our appreciation and remembrance of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our nation.
