Why do we take our poppies off a minute after 11: am on Veterans Day.

I was in a grocery store at 11:10 am on Remembrance Day in Canada and Veterans Day in the USA. and the lady before me said,`` Oh, it is time to take my poppy off`.`` In all my years, I never heard this quotation and I have worn my poppy a whole week after Veterans Day to Honor our soldiers who lost their lives so we may have Freedom. I do not mean to be disrespectful to our service men just a little blonde on this issue.

    Thanks for your input kj force. That's interesting that the origin of the poppy stated in Georgia ,also didn't know that. I am interested too to learn from others the answer.
