What is the meaning of Memorial Day?
If you were to ask someone in the U.S. what is the meaning of Memorial Day, you might be surprised by the range of answers you receive. Therefore, it’s crucial to remember the true significance of Memorial Day and why it’s observed every year.
Memorial Day is an important federal holiday observed in the United States on the last Monday of May every year. This day is dedicated to honoring and remembering the brave people who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, the holiday began on May 30, 1868, after the Civil War, which ended in 1865—and commemorated all the soldiers who had died in that battle, the deadliest of all American wars. Over time, the meaning of Memorial Day evolved to honor all Americans who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country. The day is typically marked with parades, ceremonies, and visits to cemeteries and memorials. When you think about what is the meaning of Memorial Day, it’s a time for reflection, remembrance, and gratitude for those who gave their lives in defense of our nation.
