Thirty-five countries fought in World War I from 1914 to 1918.
When the countries stopped fighting the leaders signed an armistice. They signed the armistice on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. The armistice meant that the war was over.
President Wilson made November 11 a holiday to remember the end of the war. The holiday was called Armistice Day.
At eleven o'clock in the morning, everyone stopped doing whatever they were doing. People were completely silent for one minute. This minute was to remember all the soldiers who have died in wars.
The US was in three more wars: World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. The name of the holiday was changed to Veterans Day.
Thank you! From my family to yours, I appreciate you.
I was a notorious one stop shopper for years! I didn't bother with clipping coupons because I found that generic brands were cheaper than national brands even when using a coupon. What I REALLY found was that I was not only blowing more than $150 a week on groceries for four but we never really had any groceries in the house. So, I had to teach myself some new tricks. I stumbled across a couple grocery blogs and found that coupons combined with sales and a little intuitiveness could stock my cupboards, my freezer and my wallet! I now budget $40 a week for groceries and many times go under budget and we have plenty of food left over! Not to mention all the free grocery staples I use for Birthdays and Xmas! My goal is to get as many people as possible in the TriState involved, since I cannot possibly go to every store, then we can all help our neighbors save lots of green!
