Important dates

(1/10) > >>

There are some important days, many are not official holidays, that we just can't miss and I'll flesh some of them out as time permits.

Past the celebration of the New Year, Christmas, and the Old New Year is the Epiphany. That is when you see all those folk standing out in the cold and plunging into icy waters.

The 900 day siege of Leningrad ended on 27 January 1944.

2 February 1943 is the day when Stalingrad (now Volgograd) was liberated.

SO far I have learned with my wife, that March 8th and her birthday, are two days I should not forget. ALthough she is starting to take a real liking  too, our version of Christmas.
I am sure once here full time, Valentines will make it on her list as well.
She loves flowers and decorating the house for events, soooo.
