    Americans don't celebrate Remembrance Day, that's a Commonwealth thing.

    Because they are just paying respects to the dead.

    Remembrance Day is observed in the United States as Veterans Day, while Memorial Day is rarely observed and is just another holiday for many Americans.

    There can be no memorial day if you don't remember it!
