Remembrance Day:
Armistice Day or "Remembrance Day" as it is known in Canada, originated following the end of the First World War. The Armistice agreement between Germany and the Allied Forces was signed in Paris on Monday, 11 November 1918 at 05:00 and the ceasefire went into effect at 11:00 that same morning.
Each year, Canada invites representatives from the US and international military community in Washington to participate in the Embassy's commemoration ceremony. Led by the Canadian Defence Liaison Staff, the Remembrance Day ceremony is marked by the reading of Dr. John McCrea's In Flanders Fields, the playing of Taps, and the laying of wreaths.
