Flag day. Yay for flags.

Today is Flag Day in Poland. As far as I can tell, this is because May Day is already a big holiday, the 3rd is Consitution Day and they felt sorry for the poor little 2nd, all alone and squished between two big holidays, forgotten by everyone. Either that, or they wanted three days off work.

Buildings have flags, buses and trams have flags, even people have flags. The best flag I've seen so far today though was one little old lady's. She was dragging a shopping trolley on wheels, which was mostly carrying her dog, rather than any visible shopping. Just by the dog's head, flapping by his ears, a little Polish flag was sticking out. They both looked very proud.

Very unfortunately someone caught on and the only public holidays are the 1st and 3rd. Still, that just means most people take the 2nd off anyway, and this year becasue that was tues/wed/thurs most people took the whole week.
