11th of November - Polish Independence Day. Every year we commemorate the anniversary of regaining independence by Poland in 1918 after 123 years of being devided by Russia, Prussia and Austria. This public holiday was introduced in last years of the Second Polish Republic and restored in 1989.
How do we celebrate Polish Independence Day?
In Warsaw:
- change guards at the the Unknown Soldier Memorial
- take part in Historical Parade from Pilsudski Square
- Independence Run (in this year – XXII edition)
- public gatherings
- fireworks in the evening
In Koluszki:
- solemn Mass
- Manifestation of the Patriotic
- laying flowers at the Monument to the White Eagle
How do I celebrate and feel Polish Independence Day every year? Although I don’t consider myself a big patriot, every year I try to take part in celebration this festival in my town. A few times I reticed poems beside the Monument to the White Eagle and in my school. In this year, I didn’t took part in Manifestation of the Patriotic in Koluszki, but I feel that today is a special day, that today is Polish Independence Day. And even music ,which I listen all day, is connected with important historical events in Poland. And I’m so proud that we have such great artists in Poland, which sing patriotic songs (for example Habakuk and Shrachy Na Lachy) and record whole CDs with patriotic songs (For example Lao Che). It’s beautiful that we can find true patriots in rock music nowadays. I don’t know what will be my job in the future, but I would like to do something in part connected with my country to show young people true patriotism and piece of Polish history.
