Veterans Day 2011 Poster
Unique day, Unique time
This is a unique day, really unique. It will come again only after a century, hundred years. People are mad about this day. People are mad in the US, in European Union and in India. This is November 11, 2011 in Gregorian calendar. All of us know that November is the eleventh month in the calendar. Hence, the day is denoted as 11. 11. 11. Yes, this is November 11, 2011. Eleven comes thrice while denoting this day that means one comes six times!
There are two systems for denoting dates, American and British. Month comes prior to the day in American system and month comes after day in British system. This day is denoted same in both the systems because month and day is same here.
The story does not end here. I am talking about "Hour". Time is also unique at particular moments in the day. There will be eleven coming four times at 11. It means one comes eight times at 11 of this day. Really unique? Funny?
Wait for a moment! More fun is waiting for you. What will you write when it will be eleven past eleven on this day? Here I am talking of minutes, and not only hour. Surprisingly eleven comes five times and that means one comes ten times when it will be 11 past 11 on the day.
There is more surprise waiting for you. If you have fun with numbers, it is for you. There will be eleven six times while the clock will show eleven seconds. This will look like eleven hours, eleven minutes, eleven seconds. Here we can see one coming twelve times while denoting a time and date.

Armistice Day and Veterans day
The day November 11 is celebrated as Armistice Day. An unofficial ceasefire for world war 1 happened on that day in 1918. President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day in November 1919, It was happened at 11 AM. The American President said, "To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations".
The day is an official holiday in the US. Americans renamed it 'Veterans day' by amending a law in 1954. This was happened mainly to pay tribute to the veteran soldiers of World war 1. The day is continued to be an official holiday in America. Several other countries in the globe soon started following Americans and now the day November 11 is celebrated as Veterans day worldwide.
American government officially publish a poster on Veterans day every year. The US have been organizing parades to commemorate Armistice day/Veterans day in various cities on November 11.

This is a funny day for many. Common people in the US and European Union countries are taking it as festival. However, a large number of people think it auspicious too. Large numbers of people have a wish that their child may take birth on this day. They are so eager about the day that they are going for surgery.
The day is auspicious astrologically. Eleven is counted as an auspicious number in India. What if eleven comes so many times? Large numbers of marriages taking place in India during this day. It is also the first day of the first fortnight of the lunar month Agrahayana or Margshirsh in Indian lunar calendar. This is Krishna Pratipada or Badi ekam. This is not only the first day of the first fortnight but also the first day of the month. Again we are getting the number "one".
More over, the day falls on Friday, Shukravar. "Shukra" is the planet representing beauty, love and sex in Indian astrology. Nakshatra related to the day is Bharani. Again Bharani is an auspicious Nakshatra. Nakshatra plays a great role in Indian astrology.
