Listening: Poppy Day

On November 11 every year the United Kingdom celebrates Remembrance Day or Poppy Day as a tribute to those soldiers who died in the First World War and Second World War, and also British people pay homage to the veterans who are still alive today and the British troops abroad. In the first weeks of Novembers people donate money and in exchange you receive a paper poppy. Poppy is the symbol of the fields where the wars were fought as they filled with poppies after the war. There is a poem about the poppies and those who died in the war.


Watch the following video about the poppy appeal in London:





And last Sunday was Remembrance Sunday on which every day people remember those who died in the war. Every city, town, and village has a war memorial at the base of which people place poppy wreaths.
