Today is Veterans Day, and I’m honored to hand it over to my cute little furry friend Daisy the Curly Cat, who has a great Veterans Day outfit on, along with a nice piece about this special day over on her blog.
I am wearing my most patriotic outfit, because today is a special holiday where we honor all of our military veterans. Here are some things I learned about this day:
It was in 1938 that Armistice Day was enacted as an official American holiday. But eventually after WWII, citizens felt that the veterans of all wars should be recognized, not just those of WWI. So in 1954 Congress changed the name from Armistice Day to Veterans Day. In America, the holiday now celebrates the approximate 2.9 million U.S. veterans with parades and ceremonies among other events.
Thanks for the great info, Daisy, and for the beeyootiful pictures!
