Memorial Day

   During my Memorial Day, I basically stayed at home and didn't really do anything.  So, no offense to the soldiers fighting to save our country.   I fully support them, and wish they could come home, but I didn't do anything to prove this.  Did you know the first Memorial Day was celebrated on May 30, 1868?  True fact, it was actually called Decoration Day.  People place flags or flowers to remember those who have died fighting for the U.S.  I think it's a good idea, keeping their memory alive.

National Month For...?

I think some people set up months to celebrate unusual things just because they are bored, or think maybe something needs to be honored.  Like my teacher said, May is the month for "Smiles", someone somewhere probably thought we needed to honor smiles.  Some people might celebrate it, just to be "connected with the world."  Some of the things we celebrate in May are Cinco De Mayo, Mother's Day, and May Day.  For the month of May I guess I wouldn't really like to celebrate anything other than Mother's Day, personally I think my mom deserves a day to relax.  I think we should celebrate the idea by just letting mothers have a day to relax, but that's just me.

Violence T.V.

Image result for game of thronesPersonally, I don't watch much T.V.; so I'm not exactly sure how much violence there actually is.  It depends on what your idea of violence actually is, if hunting shows to killing zombies - it's all a matter of opinion.  I mean, today basically all T.V. shows have some sort of violence in them, like The Walking Dead - everyone is basically killing a bunch zombies, or Game of Thrones because of how graphic they can get.  Often in Game of Thrones it's because of the fighting scenes, and they often show people getting their heads cut off or arrows fly everywhere, and let's not forget the blood.

Cinco De Mayo

Cinco de Mayo, the fifth of may is the day to celebrate the Battle of Puebla, why?  Probably to honor all the fallen warriors that fell trying to save their people.  The people who mostly celebrate this is the Mexican population, they often eat a lot of food, make a few "drinks", throw a few decorations around and ta da - a Cinco de Mayo party.  I'm not sure myself though if I'd want it to become a national holiday. I admit I like Mexican food, but I feel as though we just have to many holidays, but that's just me.
