We have had Mexican food on that day but never had or went to an actual party or to a restaurant to celebrate.

2. Are you having a party or going to one for Memorial Day?

Going to a BBQ/Pool party (if it gets warm enough)

3. Did you go on a honeymoon?

Yes, 7 days-4 days on The Big Red Boat (not in service anymore) and 3 days at Disneyworld

4. What do you do to de-stress from a long day?

Try and get some piece and quiet if possible lol, maybe have a glass of wine or mixed drink or cup of green tea

Not really, a reason to make margaritas is all, Lol.  No party planned but friends of ours are hosting an Anniversary picnic that same week which I'm looking forward to.  Yes, Acapulco.  Wine!  Exercise too, walking the dog.

1.  No, I don't.  I kind of did when we lived in an area with a lot of Mexicans and Mexican Americans, but not here.  Not my circus. 2.  A party for Memorial Day?  I thought Memorial Day was for putting flowers on graves and stuff like that.  No, no party.  3.  Not really.  We left for a year in England about three weeks after we got married, so no time.  4.  Take the dogs on a long walk if possible, then come home and craft before bed.  Lately I've been doing hand piecing.  Very relaxing.

Yes, it is not just a "party" day of course. We go to our town parade in the morning every year. We usually go to a BBQ, basically to celebrate the start of the summer season Laughing

1. Yes, either in or out, depending on the mood and day it falls on.

2.  Yes and no, yes I'm having a party and going to a couple of other parties that weekend but no they aren't "for" Memorial Day.  There is also of couse the biggest party for Memorial Day -- Indy 500, not sure if I'm going or not.

3.  Yes, Europe.

4.  Greet the dog, walk the dog...instant mood lifter.

Circus is a good way to describe it...it can be huge in my area.

2. Are you having a party or going to one for Memorial Day? No.

3. Did you go on a honeymoon? No.

4. What do you do to de-stress from a long day? Take a walk. These days (new, but temporary, job), I often walk about 2 miles when I leave the office, then take the metro the rest of the way.

1.  No.  Nor Arbor Day, nor Flag Day, nor Bastille Day, nor any number of "holidays" that aren't actually holidays.  Well, Bastille Day actually IS a holiday, but I don't live in France.

2. Nope.

4. Any number of different things.

No

2. Are you having a party or going to one for Memorial Day?

Pool will be open so we'll probably have some people over on the weekend.

3. Did you go on a honeymoon?

We had a destination wedding, at Lake Tahoe. And we also had a week at Block Island when returned from there. These are two of my absolute favorite places to vacation in the US.

4. What do you do to de-stress from a long day?

After a long day and I'm still stressed? The Jon Stewart show works wonders. I try to workout daily to avoid stressful evenings.
