Fun Online Polls: Poppies & Pomposity

The results to last week's Fun Online Poll were as follows:

When is it appropriate to start wearing a poppy?

Late October - 10%
1st - 4th November - 26%
5th - 7th November - 22%
8th - 10th November - 15%
11th November only - 14%
Never - 14%
Other, please specify - 0%

So now we know.

View From The Solent: "The weekend before Rememrance Sunday, which has a variable date so doesn't fit into the above categories."

Which is a fair point. But Rememberance Sunday is the second Sunday in November (between 8th and 14th) so that narrows it down a bit.
