Is it inappropriate to say 'Happy Memorial Day'? | The Tylt
Memorial Day began after the Civil War as a way to honor the men and women who died in military service to the United States. For many Americans, this typically translates to celebrating their freedoms together with family or friends. By this thinking, saying "Happy Memorial Day" is totally OK. But some believe the greeting is inappropriate; the holiday should be a somber reminder of those who sacrificed their lives for our freedom. It's not a day to party. What do you think?
