Today is Liberation Day

In East Timor, that is.

I recently found this very fun website. Earth Calendar's name sounds somewhat pagan but it is actually a website that allows someone to enter any date and find out what holidays are celebrated on that day throughout the world. One can also search by country, religion, or lunar phases.

According to Earth Calendar, tomorrow is World Gratitude Day. (Maybe we should take a moment tomorrow to say a prayer of thanksgiving for all of our blessings.) It is also the autumnal equinox. However, it did omit the Feast of St. Matthew, although I don't know of any countries that celebrate that as a national holiday.
