My family called it 'Decoration Day' when I was a kid. I never asked 'why?' yet it was fun to decorate our bikes with flags, ballons, and streamers and ride through the neighborhood, blowing our bike horns. We also had relatives over and ate outdoors. Perhaps as a child I got the impression that Decoration Day was a salute to Spring, after the cold, hard winter had passed.
