Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday that is observed on the last Monday of May (observed in 2008 on May 26). It was formerly known as Decoration Day. This holiday commemorates U.S. men and women who have died in military service to their country. It began first to honor Union soldiers who died during the American Civil War. After World War I, it was expanded to include those who died in any war or military action.

That's very surprising and interseting when I saw the topic "Memerial Day" on ebaby.

Cause I just finished the chating one of my friends in US.

During our chating, we talked about this very much.

After that, we also continued to talk about history.

hey ! I REALLY enjoyed this kind of learning althought I still need to  check the dictionary for lots of vocabularies. 

It's wonderful to know something new about the cultural,holiday,history...etc of other coutries,isn't it?
