Veteran's Day

Ok ok, Veteran's Day was officially yesterday and lots of us get today off - but do ya'll know the origin of Veteran's Day?

Veterans Day was formerly known as Armistice Day. It was originally set as an official United States holiday to honor the end of World War I, which officially took place on November 11, 1918 at 11am (11/11 at 11am). November 11 was "dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be hereafter celebrated and known as 'Armistice Day.'"
