Memorial Day is celebrated as a federal holiday in the United States every year on the last Monday of the month of May. The holiday was created to commemorate all the people who died serving in any of the branches within the United States Armed Forces.
This year, the Memorial Day holiday falls on Monday, 27 May 2013. Which means it is going to be a long weekend. Some people will doubtless take the chance to take advantage of that extra day off and perhaps travel outside their place of residence in search of a restful vacation. Or one filled with so much fun that it is better than rest.
Happy Memorial Day 2013.
