      Oh, on this day we celebrate our freedom after the occupation from WWII. It’s the day the last foreign soldier left our country and goes back to 1955. It’s a public holiday and in the past, I think even the public transport didn’t work until noon on this day. On this day our military is represented and it’s also the day when the new recruits are sworn in (loudly answering to our flag and repeating the oath to protect and serve our country).
