Remembrance Day, or Poppy Day as we all know it, is celebrated annually on November 11th. Those who gave their lives for the honor and freedom of their people and country will live forever in our hearts. This sacrifice is so great that nothing compares to its nobility.
Memorial Day was originally known as Armistice Day. First inaugurated by King George V in 1919, it is celebrated on the second Monday in November. However, the Canadian parliament has officially passed a bill making the first Monday of the week of November 11 the observance of the fallen people’s ritual. As this collided with the celebration of Thanksgiving, most Canadians quietly observed Armistice Day.
By 1928, some recognized veterans and people were seeking further recognition. They insisted that this day be cut off from the celebration of Thanksgiving so that they could properly remember their deceased brothers and sisters. Their efforts proved fruitful in 1931 when the federal government moved Thanksgiving to another date and marked November 11 as the official memorial day. Today, November 11th, 11 am is marked as the day that marks the end of the war between Germany and the Commonwealth. The war ended at 11 am on November 11, 1918 after more than four years of fighting on the Western Front. 118,000 Canadians lost their lives in the war.
The poppy is the most famous symbol of Remembrance Day. One of the reasons is that flowers bloomed in the land of war. I grew up in a place where soldiers risked their lives to defend their honor. Poppies were also very common on the Western Front.
Today, poppies are worn throughout Remembrance Day, and some are worn after the day to show respect. People perform ceremonies at war memorials, schools, or other public places. They also offer his two-minute silence for their fallen brothers and sisters while singing the song. last post Play in background.
