Memorial Day

By Ángela Padrón

Every year on the last Monday in May, Americans celebrate Memorial Day. On this day, people honor men and women in the military who died while in service to their country. People visit cemeteries and memorials, hold parades with members of the military and various veterans’ organizations participating, and gather friends and family together to remember lost loved ones who served in the United States military. At 3:00 pm on this day, there is an official national moment of silence to remember the fallen.

Si de tradiciones se trata, es necesario hablar de la historieta que desde agosto de 1949 acompaña a los chilenos.

La historieta de Condorito ha sido llevada a más de 20 países y junto a Mafalda se han convertido en los personajes que más aficionados tienen en todo el mundo.
