What ANZAC day means to me

Anzac day is the day when we remember all the soldiers that protected us in wars. We wear red poppies to remind us about the soldiers that dies in the war. This year my family and I watched the Army planes. They were very loud. We also watched a Tongan ceremony and Mangere. Then we went to a cafe. It had a TV. Then we saw another ceremony. It was a good day.

Anzac day is a day to remember the people in the war. ANZAC means Australia New Zealand Army Corp. The wives of Anzac soldiers baked cookies for the soldiers. The cookies went on a big ship that took two months. It could take two months because the cookies stayed fresh for a long time. If bread went on the ship for two months it would have moss and green stuff and it would not be yummy any more.

Anzac means Australia New Zealand Army Corp. In world war 1 the soldiers went to Gallipoli. It makes me remember my great grandad who was in the war. It was his birthday when they went to Gallipoli.  Sometimes we make Anzac biscuits. Some people wear a poppy because on the beach where some of the people died a field of poppies grew.

On Anzac day we remember the soldiers who fought and died. We remember all of them including the ones who survived. On Anzac day people bake biscuits. During the war, soldier's wives baked biscuits and sent them to the soldiers at war. They were called soldier's biscuits then. They sent them because the soldiers couldn't go without food, otherwise they wouldn't have enough energy. ANZAC stands for Australia New Zealand Army Corps. The Australians fought with us.

Anzac Day means that you remember the soldiers who died long ago. Every Anzac day people wear poppies and jets perform in the sky. On Anzac day some people bake Anzac cookies and on the day the soldiers were at the war their mothers, wives and girlfriends baked Anzac cookies for them.
