Name: Remembrance sunday ~ 321.366

Remembrance sunday is a day in the UK which is an anniversary we do every year to remember the soldiers who fought in the war of 1918 . The war ended at 11:00am on the 11th day of the 11th month . People wear these paper poppies to show their support because the field the soldiers fought on was a poppy field .

And what do Germans do on November 11th? Celebrate the start of the carnival season and behave as stupid as they can :ashamed:

I love this tradition!

I just realized, that it's sounds like I love the tradition with the stupid behaviour. But I meant the tradition with the poppies :blush:
Sorry about that...

It is very strange , but I heard that apparntley the war didn't officially stop then , there was some bombing after or something , but they wanted it to be all 11's so they made it that time .
