Most people take advantage of the three-day weekend that begins on the final Monday of May to go on vacations, have barbecues, and shop at the annual Memorial Day bargains. For many of us, this marks the beginning of summer. More Americans are looking forward to spending time with their families this Memorial Day than ever before.

As we keep hearing “Happy Memorial Day” every year, we figured we should inquire. For many bereaved families, today is not a joyful day, nor is it one meant to be enjoyed in the usual sense. If you’ve ever said anything like, “I’ve said that, but it wasn’t my purpose to be rude,” we urge you to find out more about the festival and how to properly observe it.

While it was originally called “Decoration Day” to honour those who had died in the Civil War, the holiday’s significance has grown to include all Americans who have died in military service. Forty years after it was first celebrated, Memorial Day remains a special time to honour the memory of our armed forces’ fallen heroes.

Rather than saying “Happy Memorial Day,” consider saying something like:

  • “Today we remember and honour those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.”
  • “On this Memorial Day, we honour the brave men and women who gave their lives for our freedom.”
  • “Let us take a moment to remember the sacrifices of those who have fallen in service to our country.”
  • “We are forever grateful for the sacrifices made by those who served and died for our country.”
  • Remember that Memorial Day is a time for thinking, remembering, and honouring, and that carefully choosing your words can help show how serious and important the day is.

The significance of Memorial Day may vary greatly from person to person. To honour the memory of a grandfather, grandmother, husband, wife, kid, or friend who gave their life for our country. We at the Code of Support Foundation want you to know how sorry we are for your loss and how thankful we are for your loved one.

Remember the real reason we celebrate Memorial Day, and help find ways to memorialise the brave men and women who gave their lives for our country. Visit a war or military cemetery, take part in an event given by your local veterans’ organisation, or just spend a few minutes reading up on the brave men and women who serve our country by visiting

Then, kindly spread the word about this. Get to know your neighbours’ plans for the occasion or have a conversation with your kids about why we, as a country, set aside a day to honour the sacrifices made by so many who fought for our liberties.
