To The Moon! (The honeymoon, that is!)

Well, folks…fret not…the blog may be traveling to the other side of the planet for a couple of weeks; but, that hardly means you won’t get your fix of worldwide holidays! Below I have the list of days that I would be tweeting each day for the next week, were we not paradise bound! 

So, feel free to make stopping by the blog part of your daily routine, or get your holiday fix all in one go!

Sunday, April 29:
Shōwa Day (Japan)
Commemorating the birthday of Hirohito, the Shōwa Emperor who reigned from 1926 to 1989.

Monday, April 30:
Queens Day (Netherlands, Curacao, St Maarten, Aruba)
Honors the day Queen Beatrix Wilhelmina Armgard of the Netherlands succeeded her mother, and became Queen regnant.

Tuesday, May 1:
May Day
Spring festival celebrated in the northern hemisphere – dating back to pre-Christian days, when the first day of summer was May 1!

Wednesday, May 2:
Flag Day (Poland)
The anniversary of raising the Polish flag, after the 1945 ‘Battle of Berlin.’

Thursday, May 3:
Holy Cross Day (Mexico, Peru, Venezuela)
Similar to May Day, the Day of the Holy Cross has its roots in Celtic, Roman, and Druid celebrations of the beginning of summer. Pope John XXIII tried to outlaw this in 1960, but many cultures still celebrate.

Friday, May 4:
Indie Day (Latvia)
The full name of this day is the ‘The Declaration on the Restoration of Independence of the Republic of Latvia!’ I mean, how could we not celebrate that mouthful?!

Saturday, May 5:
Cinco de Mayo (USA)
That’s right, kids! Cinco de Mayo is a US holiday! It commemorates Mexico’s victory over the French in the Battle of Puebla, in 1862. We Americans will use any excuse to pass the tequila!
