Many Au Pairs
will be celebrating the Memorial Day Holiday weekend with their host families and friends for their first time. Memorial Day weekend is the official kickoff of summer. Families are usually enjoying their time outside of their homes -picnics, BBQ, pool parties with traditional hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill.
The Memorial Day weekend is an important holiday for many Americans. It is a day of remembrance for those who have died in service of the United States of America. Au Pairs can find many special events and learn a lot about American history. Many events are free.
Memorial Day is a great day for celebration and cultural exchange. I recommend the Au Pairs attending the local parades. It is a lot of fun watching the groups that representing the veterans, military, non-profit groups, service clubs, Boy and Girl Scouts, marching bands, decorated floats, dancers, athletes, antique vehicles, horse drawn carriages and many more.
A lot of people will be with American flags and dressed in red, white and blue and the US Flags will be displayed everywhere. There many local Memorial Day parades in Newtown, Doylestown, Washington Crossing, Yardley-Makefield, Langhorne, Warminster that are very unique.
