Yesterday was the 16th anniversary of Estonia’s restoration of independence. It is a funny holiday, as people tend not to celebrate it too much (it only became a national holiday some years ago). Perhaps it is because it is too soon, perhaps because certain politicians could gain a lot from being associated with this holiday (and other politicians do not like this). I do not think it has the same worth in the eyes of the people as 24 February (next year will be the 90th anniversary of the Republic of Estonia). It is anyway quite silly to celebrate to independence days.

I celebrated the holiday with a cycling trip in Kõrvemaa with some people from the university. The weather was nice and the trip was great as well. I am not really the outdoorsy type, but I liked that event a lot.
