MEMORIAL DAY CUSTOMS AND TRADITIONS

How will you celebrate Memorial Day this Monday?  Of course, there is the usual family picnics and gatherings.  Do you do anything that reflects the meaning of the day?  In my family it's always been a tradition to lay flowers, usually geraniums, at the grave sites of veterans in our family.  Some people attend a Memorial Day service or a Memorial Day parade.  I know some friends that raise our country's flag in front of their home; according to tradition, the flag should remain at half mast until noon on Memorial Day.   You might want to be part of the National Moment of Remembrance which Congress created to encourage a moment of silence at 3PM on Memorial Day to honor the fallen.  Let's try to keep the day's true purpose alive.
