11th November is Poppy Day / Remembrance Day.

Remembrance or Armistice Day is also commonly and popularly known as Poppy Day. If you want to learn about the story behing the Poppy, watch the following video with a delicious Scottich accent.

Over a million men and women from Britain and the British Empire were killed during World War I. The poppy is the most popular symbol to remember them and honour them. This year, a field of ceramic poppies has been exhibited at the Tower of London. A beautiful and plastic image of all the blood shed in conflict.

You can get involved in Remembrance Day actively by taking a "Poppie Selfie" and posting it on twitter or instagram and sharing it with @PoppieLegion or @RoyalBritishLegion with the hashtag #poppieselfie. Alternatively, you can simply learn how to wear your poppy properly for next year in this unusual tutorial ;)
