I never turn the Christmas light on before Remembrance Day and it really makes me mad when people do because it appears that they are saying: well, it's only remembrance day, no big deal. Shame on you, show a little respect for those who have given their lives for our freedom and our way of life. We have a lot to be thankful for. Don't forget to ring a bell as the sun goes down on Sunday and remember the 100th anniversary of the armistice of the great war, 1918.

I respect that there are folks that share your opinion and have an emotionally well-intentioned reason for it.... but guess I personally see things differently. My grandpa was a vet, is buried in the veterans section of the cemetery and he also just happened to be one of the big light display houses in town a few decades ago (going as far as winning awards). One of the biggest challenges with living in this part of the world and putting together a big light display is obviously the weather. The sooner you get get things put together the better chance you have of beating ground freeze up ... and the more time you can spend doing work that often needs bare hands. Remembrance Day on the calendar means a lot. Its a day to reflect on sacrifices by so many in the name of what we have today. We’ll all remember, reflect and pay respect in unique ways and as long as something isn’t overtly malicious or ignorant I dont see the need for one person to tell another how to remember. In my case its a tip of the cap to grandpa and the biggest hobby he took on in his years after returning from the war overseas. Doing that has no bearing on my taking part in the more traditional ways of paying respect to him, to others who werent as fortunate to make it back and everyone thats fought for us to have the chances we have today.
