MEMORIAL DAY – Mexico Style

Memorial Day in Mexico.  The  United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May.  In the United States veterans will treat themselves to a cross-border trip down south this weekend to blow off steam, and enjoy the freedom that comes from their sacrifice.

Many people observe this holiday by visiting cemeteries and memorials.  Another tradition is to fly the flag of the United States at half-staff from dawn until noon local time. Similarly, volunteers often place American flags on each gravesite at National Cemeteries.  Many Americans also use Memorial Day to honor other people who have died.

In addition to remembrance, Memorial Day in Mexico is also used as a time for picnics, barbecues, road-trips.   The Indianapolis 500, which has been held in conjunction with Memorial Day since 1911.
