May 4th

On the evening of May 4th 1945, Denmark was liberated from the germans by the allies and the russians. As a celebration people tore down the blackout curtains that had darkened their homes and hearts for five years, and they put candles in the windows.

Now it's become a tradition to do so every year on that night.
It might just be my favorite tradition because it's a symbol of freedom, perseverance and hope.
