Strange – in Germany, on November 11 at 11:11 carnival preparation start, and all carnival enthusiasts celebrate.

In the UK we have a silence for 2 minutes at 11:00.

Is there anywhere in the world that commemorates at 11:11? In Britain, the commemoration is the "eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month" and in keeping with the armistice. In fact, it's on the closest Sunday, but it's still at 11 o'clock.

Today, in France, it was just "legal holiday". Nothing more except some commemorations in front of war memorials.

Doesn't the US have both Veterans Day and Memorial Day? Aren't they basically the same thing?
