Day 315 of 365 Days of Literacy for Kids:

November 11th is Veterans Day, a day dedicated to honor American veterans of all wars.

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, was declared between the Allied nations and Germany in the First World War, then known as “the Great War.”

Commemorated as Armistice Day beginning the following year, November 11th became a legal federal holiday in the United States in 1938.

In the aftermath of World War II and the Korean War, Armistice Day became Veterans Day, a holiday dedicated to American veterans of all wars.

Celebrate Veterans Day with your kids, grandkids and great-grandkids by getting them involved in Veterans Day activities.  Teaching kids about the history of Veterans Day is a great lesson and a great gift.
