Memorial Day Salutations

I am Canadian, and as such have no idea what the proper etiquette is for Memorial Day. To say “happy Memorial Day” seems a touch flippant. So, for all my American friends, enjoy your day away from the grind.

What do Americans do on Memorial Day, anyways? Is it just an “excuse” for a day off or do people actually find activities to do that honor the people the day is dedicated to?
