Not all countries celebrate it (which is really surprising to me), and some have celebrated it yesterday*, but being Russian, I commemorate the Day of Victory over the Nazi Germany on May 9. My grandfather fought that terrible war for all 4 year, while my wife’s grandmothers lived through the horrific 900-day siege of Leningrad… How blessed we are to have the freedom that so many gave their lives for!
Happy Victory Day, Everyone!!
Let us not forget those who fought, and gave lives for our freedom. Let’s remember them today.
Happy Victory Day, everyone!!
* The difference in dates of celebration between most of Europe and Russia stems from the time difference. The German Instrument of Surrender entered into force on May 8, 1945 at 23:01 CET, which was already May 9, 01:01 am Moscow Time.
