Memorial Day is almost upon us, but some people don’t know how to celebrate this day properly. Rex Perry Hyundai is here to help, so here are a few things you can do to truly celebrate the spirit that is Memorial Day.
One thing that a lot of people do, especially veterans, is going to cemeteries or memorials and cleaning up the graves of fallen soldiers. Whether it’s wiping down the stone or pulling some weeds, all of it is impactful. And before you leave, placing flowers or flags is a good way to say thanks as well.
Attend a Parade
Most towns have some sort of event or parade celebrating those fallen veterans and usually conclude with some sort of memorial service. Taking time out of your day and attending these events show your support to those brave soldiers.
Participate in the National Moment of Remembrance
Established by Congress, the National Moment of Remembrance happens at 3p, local time, on Memorial Day to pause and reflect on those lost and national unity. It is also a notable time for Taps to be played.
Talk to Your Kids About Memorial Day
Taking the time and sitting and talking with your kids about what Memorial Day is can be important so they understand what the celebration and remembrance are all about. Grabbing a kids’ book like The Wall or Memorial Day Suprise also helps them understand as well through stories.
No matter what you plan on doing, doing something is a great start. Let us all remember those lives lost and the fallen heroes this Memorial Day. Stop by Rex Perry Hyundai and let us know how you will be celebrating Memorial Day this year!
