What is Remembrance Day?
The second Sunday
of November is Remembrance Sunday, also known as Remembrance Day.
At 11am men, women and children all across Britain hold a two minute silence to remember the millions who have died in war.
The silence is usually observed at war memorials, cenotaphs and religious services and shopping centres throughout the country.
The Royal Family, along with top politicians and religious leaders, gather at The Cenotaph in Whitehall, London for a service.
What is Armistice Day?
Armistice Day is on
A two minute silence is observed at 11am on 11th day of the 11th month because this is when the Great War, or World War 1, came to end in 1918. But now, this anniversary is used to remember all the people who've died in wars since World War 1.
Why hold a two minute silence?
The first two
minute silence in Britain was held on 11 November 1919, when King George V asked
the public to observe a silence at 11am.
This was one year after the end of World War 1. He made the request so "the thoughts of everyone may be concentrated on reverent remembrance of the glorious dead".
Why do people wear poppies?
The week before 11 November, you'll see people on the TV and in the streets wearing a poppy. Poppies are red flowers which are worn to show others that you are remembering those who died for their country. The reason poppies are used is because they are the flowers which grew on the battle fields after the World War 1 ended. Poppies are also used to raise money for all the old soldiers who are still alive.
