Remembrance Day - Canada

Source: iCLIPART.com











On Remembrance Day we come together to honour the Canadian men and women who fought and died for peace and freedom.

The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, we will remember.

Remembrance Day was first observed in 1919 throughout the British Commonwealth. It was originally called “Armistice Day” to commemorate armistice agreement that ended the First World War on Monday, November 11, 1918, at 11 AM

Remembrance Day boils down to memory, respect, appreciation, and gratitude.

In elementary school students participate in Legion Poster and Poem contests. It is a wonderful, interactive way to teach children what Remembrance Day really means. Even 50 years after elementary school, you would be hard-pressed to find a Canadian born adult that doesn’t recognize John McCrae’s In Flanders Fields.

In Canada the only two provinces that do not observe Remembrance Day as a statutory holiday are Ontario and Quebec. Personally, I think this is how all of . As a student, if I had been able to stay home and sleep in on Remembrance Day, I wouldn't know as much as I do about the history and the importance of the day.
