Veterans Day Celebration

Don't you love this official poster commemorating Veterans Day on November 11, 2013!
At Simply Love Scrapbooking we want to honor all of the American veterans who have served in our armed forces. We want veterans to know that we deeply appreciate the sacrifices they have made in their lives to keep our country free. 

A little history...

Veterans Day is an official US holiday which honors the service of all military veterans. Armistice Day and Remembrance Day are holidays which are celebrated in other parts of the world. 

Where did we get this date? World War I was formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. In many parts of the world, people observe two minutes of silence at 11:00 a.m. local time. 

You can find a copy the 2013 Veterans Day poster HERE (and previous years).

We are having a one-day sale at Simply Love Scrapbooking in celebration of this special day.

Thank you Veterans!
