    Default Are you going to an ANZAC service tomorrow?

    We dont go tot he dawn service - or to the parade in the city - but we do go to the local service up the road.

    DD is presenting a wreath on behalf of the school this year

    Since meeting my dh I have been to a dawn service every year (except 2011 as I was in hospital after having ds). It is very important to my dh and since having the kids they come along too. We just go to the local one in our town but when we lived in Melbourne we would go to the big service in the city. It is also my birthday!!

    My great uncle was in WW2, only recently died. I just take Anzac day to quietly remember him. He was a dignified, proud and quiet man. I dont go to the Anzac services. Personally I think the spirit of the Anzacs has become quite lost in the type of wars the USA has started today, but that is probably a whole new thread topic.

    happy birthday tomorrow happymum, and it is my birthday too. My 60th. We will have our little granddaughters with us tomorrow so i think we might attend the parade, but not stay for the service. They can be too much to keep quite for any length of time. Anzac day is always very special for me, and not just because it is my birthday. marie.

    Happy Birthday for tomorrow @Happymum2 and @SuperGranny, exciting birthday milestones for you both!

    I used to march in the city parades with my Grandad, but since he has passed I find it too sad to keep marching without him.

    Tomorrow the kids and I are going to a service and will watch the parade and as always, it's meant to be blue skies and a lovely sunny day here tomorrow.

    Not this year, DD has been unwell for the past 2 weeks and is not getting better so I want her to rest and DP is working from home and he starts at 8am.

    We have previously been to our local dawn service.

    I've every year for the past 20 odd years with my dad who is a Vietnam vet. It took him a long time to go and watch then 12 yrs ago he started marching this was 2005 and actually in vietnam when we went there for the 30 year celebration of the war ending. This year will be my first that I don't as my folks are on a cruise and I don't want to take ds down when he has been a sick bubba the last 2.5 weeks but dp & DS1 will go to dawn service at Brighton
