The poppy's significance to Remembrance Day is a result of Canadian military physician John McCrae's poem In Flanders Fields. The poppy emblem was chosen because of the poppies that bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of Flanders in World War I, their red colour an appropriate symbol for the bloodshed of trench warfare. A Frenchwoman, E. GuÃÂ©rin, introduced the widely used artificial poppies given out today.
The poppy means a lot to us Canadians (I can't speak for other countries other than Canada, maybe someone could fill us in on that), but there is one fundamental flaw with it, THE SHARP PIN! Luckily for you guys (unless you're from the states, where you don't wear poppies) I have found a solution that protects you from pain.
May I introduce the Magnetic Poppy...
Step 1: Parts
-A Poppy (of the fake variety)
-Two 3/8th inch rare earth magnets
-A glue gun
I suggest you plug in your glue gun now, because cold glue guns are useless.
Step 2: Remove the Pin
Step 3: Place Magnet
Step 4: Centre Piece
Sorry that I don't have a picture of the centre on the glue but I'm sure you can use your imagination.
