November 11

In Canada, November 11th is called Remembrance Day. It is the day that most Canadians don a red poppy and take a moment of silence to remember our service members and the losses our entire country has suffered over our history. Not being at home is always hard for me on days like this as I do value the service members greatly. So instead of wearing a poppy (which I can't find anywhere here), I am putting this post up in hopes that others will see it, take a moment and remember. Thank you Canadian Service Members... you are the backbone on which our freedom is carried!

The poppy is a Canadian and British thing - poor Elijah keeps losing his and I keep replacing them for him

Australia and New Zealand also celebrate Rememberance Day by wearing red poppies. We had a very somber ceremony at school today, it was the best behaved I had seen the students since ANZAC Day.
