Everyone loves a long weekend, but do you know the true history behind Anzac Day?
To some just an extra holiday, but Anzac day is a national day for remembrance of our Australian and New Zealand soldiers.
The Anzac biscuits we all know and love, were exceedingly popular throughout World War I specifically.
This is because of their longevity and cost effective nature. Housewives and women groups would send through naval transport to boost soldier spirits.
The famous poppy worn by many veterans to this day was a way to remember the blood of their fallen soldiers on the ground after the war.
Anzac dawn services are often held all throughout the nation to commemorate the soldiers in the early morning.
A common courtesy is to dedicate 1 minute of your day to complete silence.
This is for silent remembrance, commemoration and/or prayer.
