Everyone knows that veterans’ day is observed on November 11 every year. But why everyone being aware of the date browses the exact date for observing the day? Why everyone every year discusses which department will observe a veteran’s holiday and which one will go on without any holiday?
Why do we observe Veterans’ day
Armistice day today known as Veterans Day was started to be observed in 1919. Officially, this day was celebrated as a remembrance day of the sacrifices of the veterans in the 1st World War. America got free from the war period on the 11th of November in 1918. That’s why the American government decided to observe a holiday every year on November 1. In the beginning, the objective of this holiday was to pay a tribute to those veterans who served the country in World war. But after a few years, observations of this day got expanded and the day became a tribute to all the living and dead veterans. Now America observes a holiday to tribute all the on duty and off duty veterans as well as all the dead and the living veterans.
Why and when Veterans day holiday is not observed
But the question remains the same that why people search that either the day is going to be observed or not? Let’s satisfy you. In case November 11 falls on the weekend, some institutions decide to observe a holiday on Monday to tribute veterans. The word “some” has a lot to describe here. It means all the institutes are not bound to celebrate veterans day ln Monday. Every institute is free to decide whether to observe a holiday as Veterans day on Monday, or not. Every institute is free to decide in this case.
How different institutes observe veterans’ day
There are some institutes that decide to work on Monday when November 11 falls on a weekend. But all the institutes on work does not work only. Some of them manage to pay tribute to Veterans by managing a time period to do so. Seminars are held though for one or two hours but the nation does not rely upon not paying tribute to the national heroes.
If some schools are closed to make veterans feel how much the nation is dependent upon them, some do it another way. Some schools are open all day to clap for the Veterans by arranging a seminar. And such are the cases with other institutes too.
This year, as we all know that November 11 falls on Wednesday day. Itis confirms that there is no chance for any institute to remain open for work purposes. So, everyone should be glad to know that Veterans day is going to be observed on November 11 this year.
November 11 is worth celebrating the day. So, never forget the actual purpose of the day when you’re on long drives or in other activities.
