Armistice Day

As a reminder, the 11th November as most people know is Armistice Day, which in the united Kingdom is traditionally remembered on the Sunday.  In France, some ceremonies will be on the Sunday, but quite a few are on the 11th November, so if you are wanting to attend any local ceremonies, check locally beforehand.

Last year in my village, it was on the 11th, and it is the same this year.  In Châteaubriant (44) they also have a ceremony on the 11th as well, at the Monument aux Morts des Terrasses starting at 11:45 am.



Also, around where I live, the schools and most of the shops and Supermarkets are shut as well.
