Freedom Day

In the spirit of our rather eclectic series on random holidays, my email reminds me that this past Friday, April 27, was Freedom Day in South Africa. Alas, my favorite South African is away on holiday in Greece, and thus unable to give us a timely culture and history lesson, but I figured I’d pass on her wish that we all take a moment to celebrate the end of apartheid, and more generally, to celebrate the magnificence of the great variety of cultures that make up our world.

To help us get in the mood, here’s a happy picture of a giant, dancing Nelson Mandela, and his South African flag-painted cow.
