Remember, Remember -- Poppies for November

Guest Blogger Trish Tilly gets us sorted out on the ubiquitous poppies of November.

 

On Remembrance Day in Great Britain, the Queen lays a wreath made of poppies on the Cenotaph, a monument in Whitehall that commemorates all the dead in all wars in which British soldiers have fought.

This day of remembrance coincides with similar ceremonies in the United States, Canada, France and all British Commonwealths. Americans call it Veteran's Day.
