11 NOVEMBER : TODAY IS REMEMBRANCE DAY, ARMISTICE DAY & VETERANS DAY.

Armistice Day is commemorated every year on 11 November to mark the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compiègne, France, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I, which took effect at eleven o’clock in the morning—the « eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month » of 1918.

The date was declared a national holiday in many allied nations, and coincides with Remembrance Day and Veterans Day, public holidays.

Today, November 11 2017 is also the 315th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar.
There are 50 days remaining until the end of the year.
