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

I second that, ralwus.
There's a new holiday anytime someone has enough money to pay off local and/or state and/or federal government.
There are 15 National Holidays. Including Christmas Day, New Years Day and Good Friday/Easter.
Then there's 25 Apr - Dia de Liberdade, 1 May - Dia do Trabalhor, 10 June - Dia de Portugal, 11 June - Corpo de Deus ... to name but a few.
And the above don't involve the likes of todays Summer Party or the one I went to where we celebrated the first wine of the season - whereby I got suitably leathered.
It was great wine though ...
lol currently on stage at the celebration spot is an imitation Amy Whinehouse. A fella. Complete with beehive, glass of wine and tattoos.
Better than that Brit guy? Ohhh, what is that bloke's name...eddie izzard!
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.

Is St. Patrick's day celebrated where you live?It's apparent that St. Patrick's day is celebrated with much more enthusiasm in the Northern United States, then it's celebrated in the Southern United States. Has anyone noticed this, and what's the reason for this?
