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.
#HowIRemember Reading WW history, thanking vets I might meet for their service. Sad that WW vets are few now. Their impact? Unforgettable.— @angmarsrealm
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.
