“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.

“King’s Day — Formerly Queen’s Day1 — is the annual Dutch national holiday in honor of King Willem-Alexander.”

“King’s Day is not marketed outside the Netherlands, but many folks from abroad have discovered this nationwide party anyway. Many now come year after year, vying with the Dutch for hotel rooms. Book as early as possible!”

International Tatting Day

(Click on link above for more information)

 

“April 1, 2019 is the World International Tatting Day takes place on April 01, 2019. Tatting is a technique for handcrafting a particularly durable lace constructed by a series of knots and loops. Tatting can be used to make lace edging as well as doilies, collars, and other decorative pieces. A good way to take part in International Tatting Day is to invite some friends and sit together chatting and tatting.

You can serve some treats, but do not choose the fatty ones so you don’t get your lace dirty. This can be so much fun plus you gain a wonderful piece of textile art craft afterwards. By the way International Tatting Day is also a day for the male because practicing dexterity benefits everyone. This text has been taken from www.cute-calendar.com”
