Veteran's Day

Definition: In the US Armistice Day officially received its name in 1926 through a Congressional resolution. It became a national holiday 12 years later by similar Congressional action. It is now known as Veteran's Day.

In 1931 the Canadian Parliament changed the name of the holiday to Remembrance Day and made November 11 a legal holiday.
