4 Unique Ways to Celebrate Veterans Day

4 Unique Ways to Celebrate Veterans Day

Veterans Day is one of the most important holidays in the US calendar. It falls on 11thof November each year and on this special day, we take time to honor those who have fought and are currently fighting for the peace and freedom of this amazing country. If you have been looking for a creative way to spend this year’s Veterans Day, then you are definitely in the right place. Read on to discover some of the best ways in which you can celebrate our heroes:

  1. Congregate

Many towns hold special celebrations such as town congress meetings and parades on Veterans Day. Make a point to attend these special gatherings where you’ll be able to learn more about Veterans Day History. A moment of silence is usually observed at the 11th hour to commemorate the time when an armistice between Germany and the Allied Powers took effect. Being in a public assembly gives you the unique opportunity to enjoy this tradition while being surrounded by the brave veterans and their families who are living in your community.

  1. Donate

This is one of the most impactful activities that you can engage in on Veterans Day. The first step is to find a local charity organization that collects donations for veterans and their families. Are you not feeling like leaving the house? Don’t worry, because certain organizations offer pickup services that will save you the hassle, thereby make it more convenient for you to donate. Household items, clothes, toys, furniture and even vehicles are all great options for you to consider. An added advantage of donating to a reputable organization is that most of them offer tax deductions following your contribution. If you have kids, then this is a great opportunity for you to instill in them a generous culture. Transform it into a fun family activity by getting everyone together and having everyone contribute something towards the donation.

  1. Decorate

Get in touch with your artistic side and make unique decorations for your home, office or school. You can experiment with colors of the national flag or you could also drape the flag itself in creative places so as to create a visual reminder of this amazing holiday. This is another great activity that you can do with your kids, family or friends. From body painting to getting balloons with colors of the national flag, there are countless ways in which you can use art to make this day extra memorable.

  1. Volunteer

Aside from making physical donations, giving of your time is another fantastic way in which you can honor veterans on their special day. Do you know a veterans hospital within your local area? Go ahead and ask if you can help in any way. You could also visit the families of veterans within your neighborhood and offer to do random acts of service like mowing the lawn, repainting their patio and washing their car. Volunteering will not only help make the veterans’ life easier, but it will also give you a great opportunity to interact with them and hear their stories.
