Memorial Day: The Customs Behind the Holiday

May 24, 2013

Memorial Day is meant for remembering all those who have served and had their lives taken for the United States. It gives the country a time to unite and remember what those brave troops have gone through in order to defend their country. We here at Dynadot would like to thank all the brave men and women who are serving and have served. This Memorial Day take $1 off of your order and celebrate with a new domain that reflects your United States spirit!

Do you take part in these Memorial Day customs?

Americans are supposed to pause at 3 p.m. local time for one minute in a moment of silence on Memorial Day. This law was passed in Congress in December of 2000.

Flagstaffs should be at half-staff until noon- after that raise them to full until sunset!

Red Poppies are worn on Memorial Day to honor the dead from a 1915 John McCrae Poem.

Every year since the first official day, 5,000 people celebrate at Arlington National Ceremony, are you one of them?
