A Discussion on Memorial Day for Beginners
The English Club on Memorial Day for Beginners was organized on May 27, 2014 at Vinnytsia Window on America Center. We started with a discussion on 'Memorial Day' speaking more about a meaning of this holiday and giving more key words to have an ice breaker.
Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the men and women who died while serving in the country's armed forces. The holiday, which is celebrated every year on the last Monday of May, was formerly known as Decoration Day and originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the war. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who died while in the military service. It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.
At the end the leader of this activity proposed to watch a movie "A Boy in the Striped Pyjamas" and discuss some points on a war.
