Did You Know?
The first Armistice Day observances, which included a two minute silence, were held in London at Buckingham Palace on the eleventh day of November 1919, exactly a year after the last day of World War I. That same day, in America, President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation commemorating the day as Armistice Day. In Britain, Canada and many other places, this date is now called Remembrance Day; in the US Veterans Day.
