Poll of the Week - 5.24.2010

Memorial Day is observed next Monday, and for many of us, it kicks off the (unofficial) start of summer with the first long weekend since February. But it’s important to remember the true meaning of Memorial Day, a United States federal holiday dedicated to commemorating the U.S. men and women who have died while in military service.

There is a national moment of remembrance on May 31 at 3 p.m. (local time, across the U.S.), but you can observe the holiday in any way you choose. So while you’re enjoying the day with your friends and family, grilling outside or watching the Indy 500, please take a moment to honor the men and women who have fought so bravely to protect our country and our rights.

This week’s “Poll of the Week” wants to know how do you plan to spend your Memorial Day?


  1. i voted for clambake, but were really doing a pit cooked bbq pig at the beach. you havent lived til youve tried it!

  2. Celebrating my broski's graduation from high school!!!!

    I will probably cry and therefore shame myself. But we are going to the crab house on Friday, that's sort of the same, right??

  3. Sometimes it nice not to have any plans. However, inevitably, it turns out to be eventful anyways =) Have a great holiday weekend!

  4. Actually the 30th is my 18th wedding anniversary and we are at a science fiction convention all that week where I sell my books (hopefully) and meet new readers. Yup, I do more, much more, than chocolate. I don't know what we might do on the 30th since that it the day the convention ends. We'll see what we feel like. Maybe dinner at a nice restaurant then just play WoW on the 32st.

  5. I am gathering a group of Americans living in Bulgaria for a pot luck/ BBQ at my casa. Too bad the BG government doesn't observe Memorial Day. I could use a long weekend!
