Participate in our commemorating Memorial Day quiz!
Memorial Day is a national US holiday the purpose of which is to honor the brave people who have died in all American wars, the ones who gave their own lives as a sacrifice for our happy future in this free country of ours! There are a number of real ways to celebrate Memorial Day (not a BBQ party, that is): you could visit a veteran’s home, the local veterans cemetery or a battlefield; you could attend a parade of a memorial service, raise your flag and honor the National Moment of Remembrance; you could also use social media to share a photo and tell the story of a fallen soldier you knew. Or you could improve your knowledge of the history of the important holiday by playing this special Memorial Day quiz we’ve prepared in order to pay tribute to the courageous US people as best we could!
