Social Dilemma-Is It Weird to Go To the Cemetery On Memorial Day?

Today's social dilemma came from a conversation that happened here at the office.  With Memorial Day coming up, I always have this conversation with friends and coworkers.  Now, my close friends know this about me, but I always like to ask others if this is their Memorial Day tradition too.  When I was a kid, we started Memorial Day early in the morning by going to the cemetery to visit those relatives who had passed on and to honor them.  Not only those in the military but all of them.  It's a tradition I've kept as an adult.  It doesn't stop me from having a bbq or going to a party but it's just a nice way to start the day honoring those who have gone before.  I still take my 87 year old mom with me.   But as I get older I find that less and less people even know what I'm talking about when I tell them my tradition.  I have some friends that do it, but yesterday, here at work, not one person said they ever did that.  I honestly thought everyone did it when I was a kid.   There were always lots of people at the cemetery on Memorial Day.  So I like to ask each year, did you or do you still have that tradition of going to the cemetery to say hi to those who have passed?  Or is this more an old timey tradition that I'm just keeping alive.  Please let me know on the 98-3 TRY Facebook page.
