Normally around this time of year you would see lots of people wearing poppies. So why is it that hardly anyone seems to be wearing them this year?

This calls for a poll!

Poll #1483029 Are you wearing a poppy?

Are you wearing a poppy?

Yes (pick this if you've got one but aren't wearing it right now)
7(70.0%)
No, and I don't plan to
2(20.0%)
Not yet
0(0.0%)
Huh?
1(10.0%)

If you answered yes or not yet, when did you/will you start wearing it?

If you answered yes or not yet, why?

If you answered no, why not?

My poppy keeps falling off. I just lost my second today. It's gotta be somewhere around my desk.

My mom is collecting lost poppies at work. Her collection is almost at 10 now.

I don't know about the rest of the world, but America's too busy getting ready for Christmas to care about anything else. [/half-sarcastic]

In the States, we wear Forget-Me-Nots for Veterans' Day. Or, rather, veterans collecting money in the streets pass out Forget-Me-Nots around this time. Very few people wear them in any practical sense--most people just put them on their car visors because that's where they donated from.
