One tradition I’ve observed here that I really like is the wearing of poppies on Remembrance Day.
In the weeks leading up to the 11th November holiday, poppies like the one in the photo are sold by volunteers or available at store tills (registers) in exchange for a donation to veterans’ charities.
While writing this post, I read that similarly is done in the US, I have never seen it, really.
In England, however, seemingly everyone buys and wears one. It’s nice to see so many people participating in this show of support for the members of the armed forces who have protected and continue to protect us.
