Happy Memorial Day!
Here in the United States, we celebrate Memorial Day to remember and honor our servicemen and women who died during service to our country. As a day of solemn remembering, I’ve always wondered why we say, “Happy” Memorial Day.
It is the unofficial beginning of summer vacation as school tends to be over for summer break about this time. The weather is warm and people like to cook out, picnic, and head to the beach. I don’t think any soldier would feel slighted that we enjoy time together today in this great land that they gave so much to protect.
Happy and respectful travels,
Natalie, The Educational Tourist
