In my last blog on Veterans Day, I had talked about the facts that every individual must know about the day and its history. This blog is going to be special because it would list out the ways that you can celebrate the patriotic day without losing its actual charm and true meaning.
Without wasting a lot of time, let me get forward to the ways you can actually celebrate Veterans Day in true spirit.
Attend the celebrations:
Celebrations are not restricted to family and friends, in fact on an occasion like Veterans Day, you must celebrate with the place you live in. Attend the parades and other social gatherings which revolve around the actual theme. Participate (if you get an opportunity) in the happenings taking place around you.
Visit the Veterans:
This is another way of showing respect to them by visiting them and spending quality time with them. Do you remember when our parents took us to old age homes and made us talk to the people there? You wouldn’t have understood the true meaning of spending time with someone whom you didn’t know back then, but they loved your presence. Likewise, when you visit these people and talk about their war stories, they’ll be delighted to have you.
If you go through the internet, you’ll find the true state of the Veterans today. Their families have abandoned them and some don’t even have food to eat or clothes to wear. You can be the ray of hope for them. Gift them something that your budget allows. Whether something that they need every day to the basic needs like men’s underwear or other clothing articles. Give them food to eat and spend some quality time with them.
Gifting is not the only idea here! You can even donate your old wearable clothes, things of use and anything that could be of some worth to the organization who take care of the Veterans. You can even donate your support, services and appreciation to the organizations if you cannot support them financially.
Go out on a Veterans trip:
You can catch up your family and friends who are from the army background and plan a day-trip to a nearby place where you can relax, talk and share the war stories with your Veteran friends.
Now you can start planning your celebration because 11th November is not that far.
