Anzac Day

Today, i.e. 25th of April, is seen as Anzac Day in Australia and New Zealand. It is on this day that we remember all those soldiers that served in the military during the World War 1 and 2, and other operations. 

Poppies are a symbol of remembrance, and Poppy pins are given out in the city for a small donation. Three young men dressed in military uniform also came in to our lecture asking if we wanted the Poppy pins. :)
