National Titanic Remembrance Day


Each year on April 15th, National Titanic Remembrance Day is observed. This day is dedicated to the memory of when the Titanic sank into the icy waters of the North Atlantic Ocean in April, 1912. We remember the more than 1,500 people who died that day.

Known as the “the unsinkable ship”, the Titanic hit an iceberg at 11:40 pm April 14, 1912, on her maiden voyage from England to New York City. Later, in the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean, on April 15, 1912 the Titanic sank, along with those passengers still aboard that had been unable to escape, due to the insufficient amount of lifeboats on-board the ship.

There have been a few movies made about this subject. Most recently Titanic starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.

This day is observed annually on April 15th in honor of those who lost their lives on aboard the Titanic in 1912. We were unable to find the creator of National Titanic Remembrance Day, an “unofficial” National holiday.
