I went out today to checked the mail box, then I saw my neighbor Die playing with his older brother. I was thinking why he's not in school..When i opened my mail box, it's empty, no mail in it. Then the little boy shouted at me, saying no mail today cos it's Veterans Day! I have no idea that today is a Holiday.
I search the net about Veterans Day and here's what I found:
Veterans Day is an annual American holiday honoring military veterans. A federal holiday, it is usually observed on November 11. However, if it occurs on a Sunday then the following Monday is designated for holiday leave, and if it occurs Saturday then either Saturday or Friday may be so designated. It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on November 11, the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. (Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice.)
Happy Veterans day to all the Veterans of the foreign wars..
