Felicidades a todos mis compatriotas Espa√Īoles, para quien no sepa porque se celebra este dia, aqui un resumen.

FIESTA NACIONAL DE ESPA√ĎA

La Fiesta Nacional de Espa√Īa (Festa Nacional d'Espanya, en catal√°n / valenciano, en gallego Festa Nacional de Espa√Īa; Espainiako Jai Nazionala, en vasco; H√®sta Nacionau d'Espanha, en aran√©s) o D√≠a de la Hispanidad conmemora la efem√©ride hist√≥rica del Descubrimiento de Am√©rica por parte de Cristobal Col√≥n y los Reyes Cat√≥licos tras la firma de las Capitulaciones de Santa Fe. La celebraci√≥n tiene lugar cada 12 de octubre, donde se celebra un desfile militar al que asisten el Rey junto a la Familia Real y los representantes m√°s importantes de todos los poderes del Estado, adem√°s de la mayor√≠a de los presidentes de las autonom√≠as espa√Īolas.

El Descubrimiento de América en 1492 fue trascendental y el 12 de octubre se ha considerado como un día memorable porque a partir de entonces se inició el contacto entre Europa y América, que culminó con el llamado "encuentro de dos mundos", que transforma las visiones del mundo y las vidas tanto de europeos como de americanos, ya que gracias a sus descubrimientos se gesta la Colonización europea de América.

Very impressive, I was totally unaware that this was celebrated in Spain.

I haven't got a clue how a nice thread like this could get out of hand.

rabbit, if you wish to post nasty pictures , please do so elsewhere.

We have celebrated our "Fiesta de la Hispanidad".

So, this is the topic.

Another funny thing I heard today. The legion actually does not just march at 140 steps a minute , no siree bob, it is 160 steps!!!! jeje

And let me tellya, what a beautiful day too! smile

This is one of the many videos already published.

  • I have deleted the previous post as it would have taken me an hour to delete all the comments, please discuss things in private, if you don't agree on something - 00494d19 Oct 12, 2011 flag
  • I'm sorry that it seemed impolite Heidi. Maybe it's where I live but I haven't heard anyone talking about this day outside of the context of the... everything else... the picture was sent to me by a Spanish person & I didn't realize it would be an issue. - rabbitwho Oct 12, 2011 flag
  • Well, if those guys think this is not a Spanish National Holiday , I wonder why they are taking the day off, pufff, don't get me started....grrrrrrrr anyway, the pictures were inappropriate, and you knew it as you actually informed us beforehand - 00494d19 Oct 12, 2011 flag

Que buena parte del video Heidita, el homenaje a los caidos y el toque de oracion con la descarga de fusileria y los aviones al final es brutal.
