Share Your World … Week 22
- Every country in the world has lost men and women in some kind of Armed Forces. When does your country celebrate or morn their deaths? (Optional)
I live in the Country Down Under and we have two days here. The major one is on the 25th of April, every year. It’s called ANZAC Day, ‘ANZAC’ stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. It’s celebrated on this day as on the morning of 25 April 1915, the Anzacs set out to capture the Gallipoli peninsula in order to open the Dardanelles to the allied navies. The other is November 11th (I think that this is celebrated a lot though). 11:11am we take a one minute silence…Remembrance Day.
- What is your favorite holiday or holidays?
I am a Christmas girl all the way. The feeling of the season just brings out my happy side. I spend all year getting little bits here and there all year. It’s amazing what you can save when you put a little away each week/fortnight.
- How do you celebrate that holiday?
Another reason that I love the season is that it brings everyone out and brings the whole family together. We have a very traditional Christmas, same traditions every year. Ones that have been in our families for years.
