Veterans Day (Remembrance Day in Canada), and Memorial Day (Victoria Day in Canada) should be the same holiday — probably on the day that is Memorial Day since that is a Monday that companies actually have off. They’re such similar days, both intended to honor the sacrifice made by people who wound up in wars. One honors those who died, one honors those who are still alive. But really, if all the pomp is on Memorial Day it seems unfair to tell the living ones that they’ve got to wait a few months for their own holiday. Can’t the dead and the living just get along?
