Re: THE Country Celebration Thread

Of course. Unless you don't want me to (considering you nominated me for ACC and all...)

You clowning could bring Finland to disrepute.

But, all publicity is good publicity.

So I WANT you to have the Finnish flag.

I am also celebrating these things and writing a short intro on the National Day. So, no disrepute possible.

Re: THE Country Celebration Thread

Because I'm probably not going be here on Sunday, I will start celebrations for the upcoming National Days earlier. Here goes:

November 18:

Latvia: (1918)



World War I devastated the territory of what would become the state of Latvia, along with other western parts of the Russian Empire. Demands for self-determination were at first confined to autonomy, but the Russian 1917 Revolution, treaty with Germany at Brest-Litovsk, and allied armistice with Germany on November 11, 1918, created a power vacuum. The People's Council of Latvia proclaimed the independence of the new country in Riga on November 18, 1918, with Kārlis Ulmanis becoming the head of the provisional government.




Oman: (1940)



In Oman, the National Day is dynamic. The current celebrations are for the birthday of Sultan Qaboos bin Sa'id al Sa'id.
Sultan Qaboos bin Sa'id was born in Salalah in Dhofar on 18 November 1940. He is the only son of Sultan Sa'id bin Taimur and princess Mazoon al-Mashani. He received his primary and secondary education at Salalah and Pune, India and was sent to a private educational establishment in England at age sixteen. At 20 he entered the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. After graduating from Sandhurst, he joined the British Army and was posted to the 1st Battalion The Cameronians (Scottish Rifles), serving in Germany for one year. He also held a staff appointment with the British Army.

After his military service, Sultan Qaboos studied local government subjects in England and, after a world tour, returned home to Salalah where he studied Islam and the history of his country.

November 19:

Monaco: (2005)



Following a period of official mourning, Prince Albert II formally assumed the princely crown on 12 July 2005, in a celebration that began with a solemn Mass at Saint Nicholas Cathedral, where his father had been buried three months earlier. His accession to the Monegasque throne was a two-step event, with a further ceremony, drawing heads of state for an elaborate Levée, held on 19 November 2005, at the historic Prince's Palace in Monaco-Ville.
