VE Day 2020: What are you doing to celebrate?
May 8 is 75 years since VE Day which marked the end of fighting in Europe in World War Two. Big gatherings and celebrations have been cancelled this year because of coronavirus but people are still doing things to mark the historic occasion. There will be special music, announcements and songs from people's homes instead of big public events. There will also be a 'toast' to WW2 heroes, which means people having a drink and remembering those who fought in the war. We want to know if you are celebrating, and if, so how.
