Anzac Day is a day of national remembrance which is celebrated on the 25th of April every year in Australia and New Zealand. "ANZAC" stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. This day commemorates the first military action of Australian and New Zealand soldiers in World War I when they fought at Gallipoli against the Ottoman Empire in Turkey. More than 8,000 soldiers lost their lives in this skirmish and Anzac Day is meant to honor their sacrifice.
