Today is a big day on the Portuguese calendar, and let us be the first to say a very happy Portugal Day to you!
Even though we acknowledge the day, it is rather unfortunate that we do not get the holiday as our fellow brothers and sisters in Portugal.
Luis de Camões wrote the most important piece of literature in Portugal today which focused on the success of 15th century Portuguese exploration. But Camões was quite the adventurer himself, legend has it, he survived a shipwreck and swam with one arm while holding his other arm in the air containing his priceless poem.
We hope that all the mothers and grandmothers are cooking up your favourite Portuguese dish to celebrate. Enjoy!
