Armistice Day is today, three days before Memorial Sunday.
This day celebrates the sacrifices of all who served in World War I and reminds all generations to use the phrase “remember” to remember the price of freedom.
Memorial Sunday is a different date each year, but the Day of Atonement is always November 11. There will also be a two minute silent prayer to mark the day.
Here’s what you need to know about this important day, how it differs from Memorial Sunday, and when to keep quiet:
What is the day of redemption?
Day of Atonement commemorates the day the First World War ended after four years of fighting.
On November 11, 1918 in Compiègne, northern France, an agreement to end hostilities between Allied and German forces was signed, which entered into force that day at 11 am, “11 November 11 am”.
Germany, beaten in the truce for the truce, evacuated the attacked countries and areas within two weeks and handed over military materials.
Hostilities continued in some areas, but the armistice effectively ended the fighting in the four-year war, but was renewed several times before the Treaty of Versailles (the official peace treaty to end the conflict) was signed the following year. It must be done.
How is Atonement Day different from Memorial Sunday?
Memorial Sunday is the second Sunday in November as a day of remembrance for those who died defending their country.
Although November 11 is different from the November 11 Armistice, November 11 is often referred to as Memorial Day, which confuses whether it is the same.
The memorial service is usually held on November 11, but Memorial Sunday began after a two-minute silent prayer was postponed to the following Sunday at the start of World War II in 1939. I did.
