Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States set aside for honoring and mourning military personnel who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. While Memorial Day didn’t become an official national holiday until 1971, its origins began with the Civil War.
Today, red, white and blue will span the landscapes of American cities as flags are placed on the graves of fallen soldiers.
The holiday, now observed annually on the last Monday of May, is usually seen as an unofficial kick-start to summer.
Americans traditionally observe Memorial Day through ceremonies, parades and placing flowers and flags on the gravesites of family and friends. They also engage in family gatherings, barbecues and other outdoor activities.
This year’s Memorial Day, there are fewer than usual restaurants open for business, as many are still shutdown because of coronavirus.
But with states in different phases of reopening, open restaurants on Monday may vary greatly depending on your resident area. Many restaurants will be open for delivery and takeout Monday.
The federal holiday, which commemorates military personnel who died in service, is seen as a popular day for a cookout.
Delivery services including Postmates, Grubhub, UberEats and DoorDash will be delivering food orders Monday for participating local and national restaurants. You can also check OpenTable for restaurants accepting reservations.
