What Does Memorial Day Mean to You?

Share your traditions for how you mark the holiday.

For some, Memorial Day is a solemn day to remember the men and women who died serving our country. For others, it’s a day of picnics and barbeques to celebrate the unofficial start of summer.

What does the day mean to you? Do you have any family traditions for how you celebrate — a trip to the cemetery, marching in a parade?

Please share your thoughts on the day and your favorite way to spend it in the comments below. We’ll pull together a sampling of responses for a story on Monday. If you’ve got a photo from years past that you’d like to share, please do by clicking the “upload photos” button above.

To me, Memorial Day is an all-too-brief moment in time to reflect and remember the actions of all those brave and selfless souls who have come before me in defense of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Some were my relatives who served in many wars, some are my relatives who served in many wars, some are friends, and some are completely unknown to me - but still garner my thanks. As you stand up to salute our flag passing by you during a parade this Memorial Day, be ever mindful of the meaning of the Red, White, and Blue. Never forget.
