Memorial Day is a US holiday observed every year on last Monday of May to commemorate US soldiers who died while in military service.

We conducted a nationwide survey to find out what this historic day means to the people. Here is what people answered:

Working professional - Finally, a long weekend! I am going for a vacation. Vegas, maybe?

Blue-collar worker paid hourly - No money to be made plus I have to be at home and listen to my wife all day. What a horrible day!

Housewife - Grand sales everywhere. It is so hard to decide where to go. I don't have anything specific to buy but will end up buying anyways because of low prices!

Student - I am just chilling and hanging out with friends ever since my exams ended. Facebook and Twitter are good places to find me. I am more interested in knowing what Justin Bieber is doing!

80-year-old - I will remember and pay homage to the dead soldiers...for one second. My memory will wipe out the rest.

Our survey was interrupted after our correspondents had too many tequila shots and passed out.

Full results will be available on the next Memorial Day, perhaps!
