Remembrance Day is a time to honor those who lost their lives in ministry. To honor these heroes, a number of shops and almost all government offices are closed.
Memorial Day, which falls on Monday, May 28 of this year, is a federal and state holiday.
Originally known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day dates back to after the Civil War, when people began to honor both Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the war. Congress passed the Uniform Holiday Act, which envisaged the last Monday in May as Memorial Day in 1968.
