Veteran’s Day: A Sweet Day Off!

Remembering those that gave you the day off

You might be thinking, “Yay, I get school off Friday!,” but have you ever wondered why? Saturday, November the Eleventh is the national holiday for Veteran’s Day. Veterans Day may seem like an extra day off for you, but its actually a day to celebrate and honor the people who served our country as part of the armed forces.

There are many different Veteran’s Day traditions including a national tribute to Veterans in Arlington, Virginia. Traditions include placing a presidential wreath down to represent the soldiers who have fought in the wars. Afterwards, the bugler plays taps, and the rest of the ceremony takes place in the theater, continuing the fun!

That may seem like an extreme way to celebrate Veteran’s Day, especially if you don’t live in Arlington, but there are more ways to celebrate than just one. Please see the photograph of the Veteran’s board from our Page High School students. Everyone is celebrating.

You can also send a card of thanks and gifts of appreciation. Check with the local YMCA to send a thank you note to the Veterans. It will truly make their day. You could also volunteer and make home cooked meals as another show of your appreciation. Now that you’ve learned more about Veteran’s Day, next time take your time and remember those that gave you the day off!
