Remembrance Sunday today. Commemorations all over the UK.
Here it is to mark the ending of World War One on the Eleventh Hour of the Eleventh Day of the Eleventh Month of 1918.
Do other nations mark this?
As noted, it's Veteran's Day here. WWII is more culturally significant here than WWI (the recent midair here in Dallas was part of a Veteran's day airshow), as is Vietnam.
My mother is from Canada (technically, so am I), and my understanding is that the traditions, holiday name, and cultural association with WWI are much the same as in Britain.
