Survey: 44% rank Memorial Day one of nation's most important holidays

A new survey by Rasmussen Reports says 44% of Americans say Memorial Day, which honors those who gave their lives for our country, is one of the nation's most important holidays.

Just 7% rate it as one of the least important holidays, while 47% say it's somewhere in between the two, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

More from Rasmussen:
The holiday is viewed as one of the most important one by 51% of those who have served in the U.S. military. Older Americans hold Memorial Day in higher regard than those who are younger.

The majority of all Americans (51%) plan to do something special to commemorate the day. That figure is up three points from last year. Twenty-nine percent (29%) say they have no plans for Memorial Day.
