ANZAC Day is nearly here and it’s important to remember why it’s such an important day for Australia.
On April 25th each year, we remember all Australians and New Zealanders who served and lost their lives in wars and conflicts, including the conflict at Gallipoli in WW1. On this day, we remember and celebrate the ideals that the ANZAC spirit represents – most importantly, mateship.
Anzac biscuits are a popular treat in Australia and are synonymous with ANZAC Day. They’re a good way to commemorate the occasion and are very easy to make – the recipe originates from the recipe that was used to make biscuits to send to the ANZACs. Due to the nature of the ingredients, the biscuits didn’t perish in transit and were, thus, perfect for sending to our troops.
Australian flags and red poppies are also symbols for ANZAC Day and are used to remember the ANZACs and what the occasion means for Australia.
This ANZAC Day, make sure to remember those who fought and lost their lives, as well as to celebrate the values of mateship and comradery that our ANZACs are the epitome of.
Lest we forget.
