Remembrance Day is celebrated every year on November 11 in Canada, Britain, France, South Africa, and other areas worldwide. The United States commemorates its own version of Remembrance Day on the last Monday in May as “Memorial Day.”

In many areas of the globe, Remembrance Day is a significant public holiday that recognizes the loss of life from wars or in the line of duty. The Memorial Day celebration in May is just as meaningful and a public holiday in the United States. Both days recognize the loss and acknowledge the cost of freedom.

The common name for Remembrance Day is “Poppy Day.” Poppies, the flowers, symbolize this day because they were often a noticeable part of the battle landscapes during WWI. People also sold paper poppies after the war in England to support and honour the nation’s service members.

How To Celebrate Remembrance Day

People around the globe celebrate this sombre holiday, and since the end of the first world war, the tradition has been to spend two minutes of silence at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month. The time and date for this common practice hold special significance as the exact time and date that the Allies signed the armistice to end the war.

Show your support for this holiday and buy paper poppies to tuck into your lapel. You could also learn more about WWI to honour #RemembranceDay.
