Today I'm a patriot

Today is the national day of Sweden. We've celebrated this day since 1983, and since 2005 it's a national holiday. In 1523 Gustav Vasa was elected King of Sweden on this day, and many other things of importance for Sweden has happened this day. For example, Queen Kristina abdicated in Uppsala on this day in 1654, and in 1974 we got our current instrument of government, which is one of the best reasons to celebrate this day. Its first paragraph states that all public power in Sweden starts from the people - isn't that beautiful? Today I'll be extra thankful over being Swedish, living in not just a beautiful country with amazing nature, from the alps to the archipelago, but also in one of the world's strongest democracies where gender equality has come far and even idiots are allowed to speak their minds publicly.

Have a nice day!
