Memorial Day is being celebrated every last Monday in the month of May and declared as a federal holiday in the US to honor the men and women who died in the country's armed forces. Many people visit cemeteries and memorials to commemorate the ones who died serving the country by placing American flags on their graves. But for most, people enjoy the additional day to spend with family or friends or just another day for relaxation and fun as it signals the unofficial start of the summer season.
