Most veterans wear their medals as they head to the parade or an event organized by a local veteran organization.
A big tradition is to give flowers, usually red carnations, to veterans in the street and to lay wreaths at the war memorial sites. Neighborhood schools may host a program prepared by the students, featuring wartime songs and poetry.
