To celebrate another Birthday I am shouting it loud It’s my birthday today
Yippee! I am so elated
So grateful to God
For His mercies and love
It’s my birthday today
I wonder what the future holds
I wonder how many more years
But I hope all goes well
And I pray the future brings good tidings
The years past has been filled with surprises
And memorable moments
Both good and bad
But such is the essence of life
So, I celebrate today
I celebrate a new milestone
Hoping for the best in the coming years
It’s my birthday today
Here’s to another year
And here’s to many more years
Happy Birthday to me
The ninth month of the year Bring me sweet feelings Just like the warmth of the sun September, my September Heralds the season of fall When trees display the gamut of diverse colours Enchanting in their pulsating colourful ensembles Autumn, a conspicuous phase Oh, My September, the month of transition
Did you know that today is Constitution Day in Denmark?
Constitution Day known in Danish as Grundlovsdag, commemorates the anniversary of the signing of the Danish constitution of June 5, 1849, by Frederik the VII. This established Denmark as a constitutional monarchy. An amended constitution was updated and signed on June 5, 1953.
The day is a holiday for Danes. A day they all flock outdoors to enjoy with family and friends. There are series of events and activities spread across the country to mark this special day. One key activity for today is that the citizens listen to their favourite politicians as they give their speeches to mark the day. Politics is a big deal in Denmark, unlike many countries whose citizens are a little ambivalent about politics and their politicians.
To mark this special day, there will be fields of Danish flags flying all over the country.
Did you also know that on this day in Denmark, Father’s Day is also celebrated?
Oh yes, today is Father’s Day in Denmark, a tradition adopted by the Danish in 1935. But did you know that a PR failure in 1949 meant that it isn’t celebrated on the same day as the rest of Scandinavia?
So, today is a holiday in Denmark and the people are happily enjoying the cosy weather while engaging in the various events and activities across the Nation.
Who wouldn’t avail themselves the opportunity of this twin celebrations to have fun and enjoy the day?
