Nothing seems to welcome in summer vacation quite like Memorial Day. Make this year a special one and celebrate with friends and family with these ideas from College Chevrolet Buick.
Memorial Day Parades
Search your local newspaper for information on your area’s Memorial Day Parades. These community gatherings offer a chance to meet with friends in the morning. Plus, there’s nothing like starting your day off with some live music and colorful floats.
Decorate with Flags
One Memorial Day tradition is to decorate the graves of fallen soldiers with flags. Decorate your own house with flags, or have a craft day with the kids to make your own American flags, as a way to honor these soldiers.
National Moment of Remembrance
Memorial Day may be a great opportunity to spend a day off with loved ones, but it’s also good to remember why it was created in the first place—to honor our fallen soldiers. One way to connect with the reason behind Memorial Day is to participate in the National Moment of Remembrance. Congress established this moment at 3 pm each Memorial Day as a way to create national unity for one minute every year. Take that minute of silence out of your day this year to thank our fallen soldiers and show gratitude for your freedom, family, and friends.
