Poppy remembrance day garland
On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, the First World War ended. This is known as Remembrance Day or Poppy Day because the destruction of the war disturbed the lands and transformed bare land into fields of red poppies that grew around the fallen soilders. Poppies are now used to show our respect to all the soldiers that died for peace and freedom.
We made a paper poppy garland to teach my children and show our respect to this special day.
