    LOL, yes, that would be it :)

    In Wrocław, the nationalist party NOP is holding their annual march tomorrow (or later today Polish time). I wish I could be there. Maybe next year.

    Poland should go back to their ancestral roots and revive Pagan worship and call the country "POLSKA-LECHIA".
    I know I'm dreaming but I'm allowed  ;D

    Only then we could say that Poland has no Foreign rule or influence.  It sure as hell wasn't Polish people who Forcibly brought Christianity among themselves.  Christianity was only accepted for political reasons anyways…. we don't need it anymore :P

    Some additional facts about celebration of Polish Independence Day

    Polish Independence Day is the most important Polish national holiday, celebrated on November 11, that commemorates regaining an independence in 1918, after 123 years of partitions by Austria-Hungary, Germany, and Russia.

    In 1918, November 11, general Pilsudzki assumed control of Poland. This event was a symbol of the beginning of II Republic of Poland. Borders and political system was shaped in 1921. To commemorate the beginning of independent Poland in 1937, November 11 was proclaimed as a national holiday. During People's Republic of Poland period it was forbidden to celebrate November 11.

    Independence day is encouraging people to think about patriotism. Holiday is celebrated in every region of Poland, but the main activities takes place in Warsaw. On the Pilsudzki's Square there are military parades and delegations are laying flowers at the Tomb to the Unknown Soldier. During that day Poland is giving honour to general Pilsudzki. In every region of Poland people are hanging flags and are attending masses for their fatherland.

    This is very important date, but its only symbolic. I don't try to disturb anybody in celebration, but there is something alarming… Everywhere they talking about restored independence, but much part of polish community don't feel anything special with this day. We only talk about history, Polish Heroes of those time, but we do nothing to propagate our national unity and identity. We still live with divisions from times of partitions. In my region of Greater Poland people still say:

    "Europa kończy się w Strzałkowie, a od Konina, Azja się zaczyna"

    eng. Europe ends in Strzałkowo and Asia begins in Konin

    And we know that in others regions of Poland, we can see something similar.
    Our mentality is still divided according from which partitions we come. Returning to date of restored polish indepence, there was similar problems. In Greater Poland we prefer to celebrate date of Greater Poland Uprising 1918/1919 – 27 of December than 11 of November. When in TV they talking only about indepence, we prefer to celebrate our local festival of St. Martin's Day and eat our "rogal świętomarciński" – kind of kifli. That's example which I know best, but there is much more of them. We shouldn't think and talking about that but finally do something with this and after that fully celebrate this day with all Poles above avery divisions.

    I am disappointed with today's Independence Day. Both left and right wingers didn't showed themselves from good side. Instead of celebrating they were fighting.
