One thing that many people don’t know about Memorial Day is that it wasn’t always called Memorial Day. The original name for this day was Decoration Day because family and friends of soldiers who had died serving in the military would go to the cemetery and decorate their graves. Another thing that people get confused about is Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Every year, Memorial Day is celebrated on the last Monday in May i.e., May 29 2023 but Veterans Day is celebrated in November. Memorial Day is there to celebrate soldiers who died while serving whereas Veterans Day is there to honor all of our military veterans. To honor the fallen, we have created the funniest Memorial Day memes for the living that you can find below.

Now when you look at history, many people argue about where the celebration began but most people point to the year 1868 after the Civil War. This was because approximately six hundred and twenty thousand soldiers died on both sides with the Union and the Confederates fighting for control of the country. When it comes to famous cemeteries you can’t talk about any cemetery without mentioning Arlington Cemetery. There are over 300,000 soldiers buried in Arlington Cemetery.  On Memorial Day the United States flag is flown at half-mast meaning halfway up the flagpole until noon. Later, it is raised all the way to the top meaning full mass until sunset in tribute to those who have fallen in the line of duty. In 1967, this holiday that honored those who died in service to the military was officially named Memorial Day. Later in 1971, it became an official federal holiday and now you see that we celebrate this day each year.

On this holiday, there are some families that go to the cemetery and have a picnic to honor their fallen loved ones. Although this isn’t a widely accepted way of celebrating this day, you can still find people who do this to remember their loved ones. With Memorial Day being so close to summertime, it is said that nearly 32 million people travel each year on this holiday. This is because a lot of families use it as an opportunity to take a summer vacation. Now, that you have learned about its history, let’s head onto Memorial Day memes.
