What you didn’t know about Anzac Day

Category: News, Date: 22 April 2022

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.

    ANZAC day should be remembered with a sprig of wattle rather than a poppy. It should be remembered the red poppy came about after being noticed as being the only thing to grow on the battlefields of the western front after the grounds were desecrated. Chronologically the red poppy came about to commemorate the end of the Great War or World War 1 and is therefore more appropriate to Armistice Day on 11 November. The original ANZAC Day on 25 April 1915 was initially therefore remembered with a sprig of wattle.
