Hello, My Darlings! I hope you are having a great day today. I just wanted to quickly pop on here and congratulate Latvia! Today 18. November we are celebrating the 101 years of Latvian Independence.

Why it’s the 18.November?

18 November is the Independence Day of Latvia — even though there were no borders set, a group of dedicated nationalists proclaimed an independent Latvian state on this date in 1918. Several months after this courageous step had been made, military interventions still went on — the Russian Empire did not want to lose this important territory. Nevertheless, this day is still the most important national holiday for every Latvian.

If you are in Riga today definitely take part in the celebration events(like concerts, fireworks, the speech of the president near the Freedom Monument).More info you can find here!

Today I’m going to celebrate with my family, eat traditional dishes and watch some old Latvian movies. Happy Birthday, Latvia!
