Remembrance Day - 11th November

11 - 11 - 11
Remembrance Day
.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
..
http://www.poppy.org.uk/

.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remembrance_Day
.
Common British, Canadian, South African, and ANZAC traditions include two minutes of silence at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month because that was the time (in Britain) when the armistice became effective.
.
The Service of Remembrance in many Commonwealth of Nations countries generally includes the playing of the Last Post, followed by two minutes of silence, followed by the playing of Reveille (or, more commonly, The Rouse) and a recitation of the Ode of Remembrance. The Scottish Bagpiper's Lament is often played during the Service. Services also include wreaths laid to honour the fallen, a blessing, and National Anthems.[3]
