9 Knit & Crochet Poppy Patterns To Observe Remembrance Day On November 11th
As a Canadian, I grew up observing November 11th as Remembrance Day, a somber occasion to remember members of the armed forces who have died in the line of duty and to recall the end of First World War hostilities which formally ended “at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month” of 1918. In Commonwealth countries, the red remembrance poppy is a familiar emblem of Remembrance Day, due to the poem “In Flanders Fields” written by Canadian doctor Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae. Here is an example of what 40,000 poppies look like – just incredible.
