There is no school tomorrow, Wednesday, November 11, 2020, for Veterans Day. Unlike many holidays, which get celebrated on the closest Monday, Veterans day is celebrated on the day it occurs. And you may wonder why that is. Indeed, Veterans Day is the *only* secular holiday that is celebrated on the day it happens, rather than the nearest Monday. The reason is that Veterans Day was originally Armistice day, celebrating the armistice, or cease-fire, that ended World War 1. This agreement was signed at 11:00 on November 11, 1918, the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. Over the years, Armistice Day evolved into Veterans Day, a day when we thank and celebrate the sacrifice of our living military veterans. In this way, it is different from Memorial day, when we honor our war dead. So, remember this as you think about your day off tomorrow. There’ll be no moment of silence as we celebrate our living veterans, but since we have several veterans on the faculty and staff, as well as staff members whose parents and/or children have served, perhaps you can take a few moments to seek these people out and thank them for their contribution to our way of life.
