What is Remembrance Day (Canada)?

Remembrance Day (Canada)

In Canada, Remembrance Day honors and memorializes those who perished and lost their lives in all sorts of armed conflicts. It typically falls on the 11th of November each year, where it is a day off in some areas, and a normal working day in others.

On the weeks leading to Remembrance Day, myriads of people wear artificial poppies with varying colors for different symbolisms. For example, white poppies betoken the non-military interventions, whilst the red poppies are intended to pay homage for those who died.

Church services are usually organized on Remembrance Day, where certain musical pieces are played and particular verses of “Ode of Remembrance” are recited, followed by two minutes of silence at 11 am. Thereupon, war memorials are decorated with wreaths. Moreover, schools which are open on that day endue special presentations anent those who died in the armed conflicts.

The official ceremonies of Remembrance Day in Canada take place in Ottawa, Ontario, at the National War Memorial, where the remains of an unidentified Canadian soldier who died in World War I are laid in the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
