It is the Chilean National day on the 18th September.
Lots of BBQ's and kite-flying. Yes, in Chile everyone is out flying kites, both adults and kids.
There are 'fondas' which are like open community parties with music, dancing a lots of drinking and eating empanadas (a type of meat turnover). The next day(19th) is also a holiday called 'the army day' where traditionally the army parades past the president with their full uniforms that have recently-shined buttons etc. People really get behind the celebrations, very patriotic with a lot of dancing of the 'cueca' (the national dance).
This year there will be no work for many on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Also on the 17th, people generally work a half day. How's that for celebrating the national day, almost five days to do some serious liver damage.
Did you know that in Chile it is compulsory to fly a Chilean flag during the national days from every building and house otherwise you get fined. This is a law that still hasn't been changed since the dictatorship.
When is your national day and how do you celebrate it?
My national day...I don't know if we have one.
There are special days like Constitution Day, on the 6th December.
Our National Day is October, 3rd.

On 3rd of October 1990, both German states "Federal Republic of Germany" (West Germany) and "German Democratic Republic" (East Germany) have been officially reunited.

We don't really celebrate this day. There is usually a great festival in Berlin around the Brandenburger Tor and some politicians usually hold a speech then.

In my opinion, it is also the wrong date to celebrate because the real reunification day should rather be Nov, 9th.
The real emotions came up when the Berlin Wall fell on Nov, 9th 1989.
A country that had been divided in 2 parts for 40 years should come together in only one night?
Everything happened quietly, there were no fightings, no violence just joy, nothing but pure joy and great emotions on that day. People were crying, hugging each other, and celebrating the whole night on the remains of the Wall. TV-Channels broadcast live, people started crying in front of their TV sets, they just couldn't believe what happened...
It was a kind of a quiet revolution that was a result of the people's wishes and not an act of the government (which came on Oct, 3rd 1990 and was just the official seal of this act).

Before the reunification in 1990, this day was celebrated on June 17th, as a day of rememberance of the uprising of 1953. People tried to force a reunification but the rebellion was beaten down bloodily by the Russian Government in East Germany. As a later result, the Berlin Wall was built in 1961, showing that a reunification would never be possible.

Australia Day is the 26th January, which is the date in 1788 when the first fleet led by British naval commander Arthur Philip landed at Sydney Cove and established the first European colony. On Australia Day we come together as a nation to celebrate what’s great about Australia and being Australian. In communities across the nation, Australians take to the streets, the beach, parks and backyards to celebrate our land, people, heritage, diversity and freedom.
