I'm in Phoenix with my cousin attending Phoenix Comic con.
@jorgevy: My step dad was in the navy but he doesn't really talk about it so the farthest we go to celebrating is the barbeque. I believe there is usually town parades for people who do get into the holiday though.
I know schools are usually closed on Memorial Day since it's a Federal holiday but think some people still have to work if they're not federal workers? Could be wrong on the last part.
@jorgevy: =D It really is. Always nice to show respect for the soldiers. ^__^ I'll have to ask my dad when he served and etc. My teacher's son is in the ROTC program (it's basically for teens and young adults to prep up for the military life style and to see a glimpse of what it's like) and I think he'll be apart of a military parade in town tomorrow. Gonna have to recheck on that.
