Maybe it's just me. But Portugal do know how to throw a good party. And the whole country seems to observe any/all national holidays in style.
Last week there were three different national days. Or maybe two and one was a practice party. It's hard to be sure sometimes.
Today they're celebrating the start of summer. More festivities. Though to me, summer started a while ago. There's others, strewn throughout the year. All involve fun, food and dedicated alcohol quaffing.
How many national holidays does your country celebrate?
In India they are; * January 26, Republic Day: Marks the adoption of the Constitution. * August 15, Independence Day: Marks the day India achieved independence from the United Kingdom * October 2, Gandhi Jayanti: Birth Day of Mahatma Gandhi Source http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ho … ntry#India
Seems to be every month where I am and some are extended like the ongoing midsummer festivals which culminate in the night of San Juan on the 23rd which is a massive celebration here! They had a firework display tonight in the village I am in.
