Armistice Day History
Armistice Day is a French holiday that commemorates those who died or were injured in World War I. To this day, WWI is still one of the bloodiest and most violent wars to have ever occurred in human history. The holiday also pays respects to those who have been killed or injured in other wars since World War I.
Armistice Day is celebrated on 11 November, coinciding with the day on which the hostilities and fighting of World War I ceased at the 11th minute of the 11th hour of the 11th day in 1918. A 2 minute silence is observed at the same time during the day. Armistice Day was first held in 1919 and has since been observed annually.
