It's a public holiday in Australia today, ANZAC Day. It's the most important public holiday in this country. The 25th of April marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by soldiers from Australia together with New Zealand during World War I. ANZAC = Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. On this day we remember all the soldiers who served and died, not only in WWI, but in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations over the years. It's a day of remembrance.
What's with the cookies, I hear you say...☺
Today I'm going to make some ANZAC Day biscuits if I get the chance.
If you click on the borrowed photo you can get the recipe I'm going to try!
Have a great Friday!
...and enjoy your weekend.
