Most Americans know little about the history and significance of Memorial day anymore. With over 4,000 dead in Iraq and Afghanistan I hope it has more meaning now. To most it's just another Labor Day, which originally a holiday only for federal workers, but now everyone here gets it off. The first Memorial Day was enacted by General John A. Logan to honor Civil War dead in a small cemetery in Carbondale, Illinois. Didn't know this? Don't feel bad most of the residents of Carbondale have no clue either, and no special ceremony is held there. As for gas, too high. don't buy. I only drive a couple days out of the week for work. Other than that I ride a mountain bike and get pushed off the road by motorists.

indeed it is , it's a holiday to honor US men and women who have died serving their country in the armed forces . http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memorial_Day not meaning to exclude other nationalities in this poll but it is (at least it used to be) a pretty important day for us . sadly now it's pretty much viewed as little more than a three day weekend . for the men and women who died serving, i thank you .

There are a lot of polls and similar stuff that are now just targeting the US... a game i downloaded for Wii - i stopped playing because it started to ignore everywhere BUT US... now mohfiles... maybe next will be elections... (Aaah!!!!! - how would you feel if another country was voting for your prime minister/president?)

bbejones . you're complaing because a poll happens to be about a holiday in america . a holiday for that matter, about fallen soldiers . this is a poll , not an election . if you don't feel like the subject/criteria of this or any poll does not fit you...simply don't vote . for that matter, the poll isn't even really about memorial day; it's really about the high price of gas and traveling .
