This is a great post.

I had no idea there was such a thing as a "national poetry day" in your country - what a drastic contradiction in terms!

In Sweden a few days ago we celebrated the national cinnamon roll day - simply commercial yes, but when considering that the 4th of October was previously the emblematic day of upper-class extraparliamentary struggle, with the huge 4/10 demonstrations against social democratic "employee funds" in the 80s, one wonders whether it is a big conspiracy for establishing unconscious associations between businessmen and cinnamon rolls, or a triumph of pastry desire?
