Happy Memorial Day?

We're a few days after the holiday now, but I've been seriously wondering: Do you wish people a happy Memorial Day?

I have never have done so for what I think are obvious reasons, but as it seems they're not obvious to everyone, Memorial Day is a day to remember/honor dead soldiers. I'm not dead nor a soldier and for the loved ones of those who are, remembering them is surely not a happy event.

So do you wish random people a happy Memorial Day? For the past few years now and in increasing numbers each year, I'm having people sincerely wishing me a happy Memorial Day. Every time they do, it leaves me perplexed. As I'm caught off guard, I usually have to stop my knee-jerk response of "You too!" and instead answer with a soft, quizzical, "Thank... you?"

Am I completely off my hinges?
