In the United States of America, Memorial Day is observed as the federal holiday. Every year, it falls on the last Monday of May. The day was formerly known as Decoration Day which is an occasion to decorate the graves of war dead and it is celebrated to commemorate all those men and women who died in the military service for the United States nation. Memorial Day and the long weekend which it creates traditionally marked the commencement of summer season.
