Today we are celebrating 40 years of freedom in Portugal. On April 25th 1974 the Estado Novo (current government) fell through military coup and civil resistence. Portugal was living in a dictatorship since 1933 and it was about time to change for a Democratic Regime.
The most beautiful part is that instead of guns and blood this revolution day was pacific with people holding carnation flowers in the streets to celebrate the end of the dictatorship and war in the colonies. That's the reason why we call "Freedom Day" as the "Carnation Revolution". [photo source]
Today my heart is with all portuguese people from North to South of Portugal and also the colonies who lived before April 25th 1974, you guys lived hard moments of pression and you are still today here to tell us the stories. Much Love!!!
It's holiday here so me and the girls will spend the afternoon playing mini golf :)
Have a beautiful Friday xx Marta
