Although there has been a resurgence in the attendance and meaning of Remembrance Day, there are some practices to which I take great offence. Firstly, Remembrance Day is not a holiday. Yes, nowadays schools, government offices and others are closed and/or have special hours, but please do not refer to it as such by posting signs stating holiday hours. Secondly, some large stores now advertise a Veterans’ Day sale, a practice which is purely deplorable.
Please, let’s show some social graces.
