Memorial Day is a holiday in the United States for remembering and honoring all the Americans who died while serving in the country’s armed forces. Many families and volunteers visit cemeteries and memorials. Many of them place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries, particularly to honor those who have died in military service.
Thanksgiving is a beloved in the U.S. because of all the great food and drink available (turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, gravy… oh, sorry, is that distracting?). But the more people traveling and driving around can make the whole thing a little overwhelming? Is it really worth it to get stuck in traffic for three hours just to spend the day pretending to enjoy the company of your relatives?
