Too often at this time of year we forget the Canadians. While on the Fourth of July Americans are busy at barbecues, parades and concerts, lighting fireworks late into the night, and generating lots of noise about declaring their independence from the British in 1776, many forget that just a few days before, Canadians are celebrating the birth of their country, too. (What’s a Canuck got to do to get a little attention, eh?)
So we decided to do a little bit of research on this important holiday, and find out what it’s all about!
Memorial Day is a time to remember those who made have served and made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. As a federal holiday falls on the last Monday of May, Memorial Day creates a 3-day break that’s perfect for spending time with family. You can visit the historic sites in Washington, DC, bask in the warm Hawaiian sun, and so much more!
