Description

The three most significant festivals in Poland

National Independence Day National Independence Day (Polish: Narodowe Święto Niepodległości) is the most important Polish national holiday. On November 11, 1918, after 123 years of captivity, Poland regained its independence.

• After years of partitions done by Austria, Prussia and Russia between 1772 and 1795, national uprisings (November Uprising of 1830 and January Uprising of 1863), struggles and efforts in various fields, Poles, owing to their steadfastness, patriotism and heroism, managed to regain their freedom. Józef Piłsudski, “First Marshal of Poland”, played an enormous role in Poland’s recovery of sovereignty.

• On March 21st, the first day of spring, in many Polish cities and towns one can see groups of children traveling in different directions. The groups of children are accompanied by their teachers, and they are on their way to a river, lake, or pond to drown a “Marzanna”. • Marzanna (in Polish) is a Slavic goddess associated with seasonal agrarian rites based on the idea of death and rebirth of nature. She is associated with death and winter and is often described as the goddess of death.
