Many times these parades are linked to current revelry of food, drinking, and a full out party atmosphere. They are fun events. We enjoy them. All the while the true cultural-historical reason for the commemoration is often misplaced. Forgotten are the lives that were committed, and even lost, to bring about such historical events.
