On November 11, Veterans' Day is celebrated, a celebration of veterans and the fallen of all wars: it is both a federal holiday and a celebration of all states. The party was set up to thank the military and acknowledge the contribution they have made to the security of the United States. Initially when the party was instituted in 1919 by President Woodrow Wilson, it bore the name of Armistice Day to celebrate the armistice of Germany which effectively decreed the end of the First World War and was signed at 11 on 11 November 1918. The name changed on June 1, 1954 to honor all soldiers who have served their country during all wars.


Although the holiday is both federal and state, in most of the United States, only public offices and banks are closed on November 11; some schools and almost all shops remain open regularly, also because always in November (4th Thursday), there is the Thanksgiving holiday during which almost all shops close for 4 days.
