Sometimes I think that people of today have the attention span of fruit flies. I am including myself here because if I am not reminded about something within the hour, I am likely to forget about it again. This coming from someone who was nearly consumed by a serious time warp, the irony does not escape me... Anyway, I just realised that today is Liberation Day, marking the end of the German occupation in WW2. It never was a day I celebrated properly, maybe because I can't imagine Nazi Germans even setting foot in Denmark. You would have to have lived then, or be brought up to show appreciation of this day to never forget the 5th of May. But for those of us who do forget, there are reminders in the shape of flags everywhere, even on the buses. And tonight those who remember to will light candles in the windows. That includes me, if only someone will be kind enough to remind me in about an hour...
Here is a link to the happiest people you may ever have seen on snapshots of the big day.
Happy Liberation Day!
