November 11: Remembrance Day (Canada)

Remembrance Day in Canada is a day to honor the Canadian men and women who have died in service to their country. Poppies are often worn in remembrance.

The date, November 11, marks the anniversary of the end of World War I in 1918. Traditionally on Remembrance Day, two minutes of silence are observed at 11:00 a.m., the same time when World War I hostilities ended (the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month), according to an armistice agreement signed by Germany and the Allies.
