We asked the CBC News audience on Twitter and Facebook to share their memories and traditions for Remembrance Day using the hashtag #HowIRemember

These are just some of the stories you told us. 

For some of our readers, thoughts of Remembrance Day centre on ceremonies and symbols.

For others, it's an opportunity to learn more about the history of war. 

Some of our readers shared their family connection to active members of the military. 



Our request for Remembrance Day rituals reached as far as Northern Ireland. 

And many readers told us the stories of family members who served in the Great Wars or, for reasons of conscience, did not.

On Twitter, Stacey Brown shared several mementoes of her grandfather's service to Canada. 

Thank you for all of your contributions.
