Observed annually on the last Monday in May, Memorial Day honors the brave Americans who lost their lives while serving in the military. In 2017, Memorial Day falls on May 29, and many Americans will have a three-day weekend to kick off the unofficial start of summer.

Since it’s a federal holiday, government offices such as the Social Security Administration and the postal service will be closed for the day, so don’t expect to send or receive any mail. The New York Stock Exchange, SIMFA, the Nasdaq and the Federal Reserve Bank will also be closed on Memorial Day.
