A Day of Remembrance: November 11

On November 11 annually, many nations host ceremonies to remember those who served in wars.
In Canada, the day is known as Remembrance Day.
In England, while it’s officially called Remembrance Day, many refer to it as Poppy Day.
In Australia and New Zealand, it’s called Anzac Day.
In The Netherlands, they remember the day as Dodenherdenking.
In Belgium, Armistice Day is the day of memorial.

We couldn’t say it better than the Canadian Legion:

“The Remembrance Day Ceremony has played a major role in Remembrance since 1931. Every year, at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, we gather in memorial parks, community halls, workplaces, schools and homes to stand in honour of all who have fallen. Together, we observe a moment of silence to mark the sacrifice of the many who have fallen in the service of their country, and to acknowledge the courage of those who still serve.”
