In the rural south, it's called Decoration Day. There are still plenty of people participating. Including the picnic part. That's called Dinner on the Grounds.

Southerners are blood drenched barbarians.  The Yanks are saints (not).

The terms derive from the same meaning.  The meaning only separated when secular events began to occur as separate from theistic ones.

And some were always secular.  Solstices, for example.

BS /// tell that to the pagan Irish etc.  For you secular is just non-Christian?

Mother's day is secular, unless you worship your mother ;-)
