Memorial Day is a federal holiday of United States of America. This is not an ordinary holiday, it’s a magnificent victory day in the remembrance for those men and women in military services who have died for the victory of the nation, and it’s a day for national heroes who died for the country. Memorial Day is primitively known as Decoration Day, but in 1882, some starting calling it as Memorial Day. But till 1967 this was not an official name. On 5th May, 1868 Memorial Day was first proclaimed by the General John A. Logan. When the civil war ends up in 1865 around 497,831 soldiers were died for the nation. People started to decorate the graves of the soldiers who died in war. In 1915, Moina Michael conceived an idea to wear red poppies on that day in the honor of the soldiers who died serving the nation throughout the civil war. She was the first who wore this flower and sold it to her friends and other people. The money came from the selling of the flowers was used to benefit the family of soldiers. In 1921, France- American children league started to sell these flowers and gave the benefits to deprive of Belgium and France.

Since the late 50’s before the Memorial Day warriors place small flag of America at 260,000 gravestones at Arlington National Cemetery. After the World War- I almost every state of America started to celebrate this memorable day. But present people have forgotten the custom. Many of the graves of the veterans at the bone yard are ignored by the people. Many peoples of America celebrate Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials.

By remembering the soldiers of war, Memorial Day is of course a time to visit war memorial places and gave their protection to the veterans who died in serving the nations. There are so many events coordinated by many of the high society. On Memorial Day we can also prepare a party or picnic and every guest bring a story of someone who served for the country.
