WHEN IS THE VETERANS DAY HOLIDAY IN THE USA?
Veterans Day, or “Veterans Day” in English, is celebrated on November 11. Although in 2023, the date will fall on a Saturday, it will be celebrated on Friday the 10th. And the US labor rule indicates that if the work holiday is celebrated on Friday, if it falls on Saturday; and if it falls on a Sunday, it goes on the following Monday. The goal is to make a long holiday.
WHY IS VETERANS DAY CELEBRATED IN THE USA?
During Veterans Day it seeks to honor those who have served in the United States Armed Forces.
The first time the date was celebrated was November 11, 1919, when it was the first anniversary of the end of the First World War. President Woodrow Wilson declared that day Armistice Day and in 1938 the date became a legal holiday.
The origin of Armistice Day was to honor those who lost their lives in the First World War. In the early 1940s this changed and, since then, all veterans of the United States Armed Forces have been remembered. In 1954, “Armistice Day” became, legally, Veterans Day.
It is important to remember that the date should not be confused with Memorial Day, where the population remembers the men and women who died in combat.
