Well, some of the people who has family members never gone to war. But they do celebrate by having a picnic or going to see the fireworks in the evening. They want to relax on this holiday. Beside, I am sick of wars. Can we have peace in our world (Earth)? I am sorry about our fallen soldiers who had to suffered from the battles over the years and died. Just have to bury our thoughts and enjoy the moments in this special holiday. We don't need to be sad all day, eh? Remember I was from USA before coming to Canada.
Also can we say "Can they be happy without fighting over there?". Wars were terrible and I don't like that at all.
