Día de la amapola

Cultura : Día del Recuerdo es también conocido como Día de la ampola, porque es tradicional para llevar una amapola artificial. La amapola se usan debido a que en la Primera Guerra Mundial el frente contenida en el suelo miles de semillas de amapola. Las semillas misteriosamente floreció durante las batallas. The poppies are worn because in World War One the Western Front contained in the soil thousands of poppy seeds, all lying dormant. They would have lain there for years more, but the battles being fought there churned up the soil so much that the poppies bloomed like never before. The most famous bloom of poppies in the war was in Ypres, a town in Flanders, Belgium, which was crucial to the Allied defence. There were three battles there, but it was the second, which was calamitous to the allies since it heralded the first use of the new chlorine gas the Germans were experimenting with, which brought forth the poppies in greatest abundance, and inspired the Canadian soldier, Major John McCrae, to write his most famous poem. This, in turn, inspired the British Legion to adopt the poppy as their emblem. BBC
