Question of the Day

Nov 12, 2014

Yesterday's question asked: Britain came to a standstill to observe a two-minute silence in honor of Armistice Day and the millions of soldiers who died in World War I. At what time of day (still observed today) did WWI fighting officially conclude? That would be 11:11 a.m (Paris time).

Congratulations to Ken Walker of the Tampa Bay Times for being the very first to get that right! Just a hair behind him, honorable mentions go out to his colleague Craig PittmanDan FreedmanJulie JarrattMatthew DelmanHal Davis, and Alan Blaustein for also getting that exactly correct.

As for today's question, here it is: The date 11/11 is special in China for a very different reason. What day was celebrated there, yesterday?
