Remembrance Day In The Cayman Islands
Remembrance Day in the Cayman Islands is marked on the second Monday of every November, while many countries, including the U.S. mark it on November 11th regardless of the day of the week. Remembrance Day was originally held November 11th as “Armistice Day” to commemorate the end of World War I. It is still observed in British Commonwealth nations, including Cayman Islands, to honor the veterans (now all deceased) who fought in World War I. On Remembrance Day in Cayman Islands there is an official wreath-laying ceremony presided over by government officials, and public recognition of military veterans both living and deceased. While Remembrance Day is not so widely and vigorously celebrated these days as in years gone by, it is still observed. Out of respect for the heroes of the past and out of sheer tradition, this World War I holiday lingers on despite there being no living World War I veterans. We here at Eightpoint would like to wish you a very happy Remembrance Day!
