“Liberation Day is a Portuguese public holiday celebrated every April 25th, commemorating the overthrow on that day, in 1974, of the dictatorial Estado Novo (New State) fascist government. The holiday is also sometimes called “Freedom Day” or “Liberty Day”.”

“Liberation Day is a celebration of the coming of freedom and the end of dictatorship in Portugal. There are many events to attend, especially in the Algarve region at Portugal’s southern tip.”

“Most Portuguese celebrate Liberation Day with street parties, festive family meals, and feasting on traditional Portuguese foods. The street parties may also show patriotic films, like The Capitans of April and have comedic acts and live folk music performances.”




This past November 2018 I took part in the Nibvember 2018 Challenge.  Day 27 prompt was Lettering and I came up with the design below.  It’s easy to see where my inspiration came from as I’d participated in the A to Z Challenge in 2016. So, feeling the call to try once again for A To Z Challenge 2019, I decided to sign up for this years using this design as my inspiration.

  1. Mary Lou – aren’t many holidays around the world tied to ‘liberation’ – although called many different things? It is crazy that people actually went around oppressing other people. And it is still happening today. Ugh.
