    "Veterans Day" "Rememberance Day" "Everyday", just like you said, CAthy.

    We should recall those who gave all and continue to give. Amazing people!

    Oh, good someone else asked. I didn't know you had something akin to veteran's day either... Saying a prayer for all who have fought and continue to fight for their country's freedom.

    The best thing there is; learning something new every day (next to loving someone new every day, that is:)
    Thanks, Vani; we went to the ceremony downtown today but couldn't see or hear a thing, the crowds were so large; people around us were all saying that this was the largest crowd in over ten years. I really think it has something to do with the state of the world right now and hanging on to peace.
    The most amazing people and so important to thank them now, because there are so few left to remember.
    I wouldn't expect most people to know about this outside of Canadians, because we don't really export ourselves. On the other hand, Canadians know about American culture in great detail, primarily because we watch your tv shows, your news, etc.

    Hope everyone is having a great day!

    Armistice day is the official anniversary of the End of World War 1, signed by the Allied Forces and Germany on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918. It was changed to Veterans Day in the US after WW2 and Remeberance Day in the Commonwealth countries. It is commemorated in all the countries of the Allied Forces. Poppies are used as a symbol of rememberance because they grew on the fields of Flanders that saw so many deaths.
