May 28 – Republic Day – A Quiet Holiday

89 years ago this day Armenia declared independence from the Transcaucasian Democratic Federative Republic, thus forming Democratic Republic of Armenia. It was the first sovereign republic in the history of Armenia, however the holiday was not celebrated during Soviet times, and it only achieved consistency after the collapse of the USSR. (Wikipedia)
Even though the republic was short lived, I am immensely proud for it, and I wish to join all and everybody celebrating May 28th – the Republic Day! Wish you all a proud holiday.
Unlike the Armenian Genocide Commemoration day the Armenian blogosphere (or at least the part I’m following) is not very active remembering this key event in the history of modern Armenia. Something wrong with my list? I don’t know…
