In Canadian tradition, Remembrance Day is marked by a poppy, worn over one's heart. It is a mark of allegiance worn through much of October and November, and often continuing on through Christmas. But what are some other ways that you can show your tribute to our current and past troops?
Aside from the obvious (purchased poppy wreaths from veteran halls and attending your local Remembrance Day memorial), there are several great ideas out there for decorating and other ways to honour your loved ones. Here are a few of my favorites:
