The date of 24th of February is a very important for every Estonian. Tomorrow, 100 years ago the committee declared independence of Estonia and formed Estonian Provisional Government. This all happened in Pärnu, which is a city located in southwestern of Estonia.
We are lucky and happy to celebrate our 100th birthday, together with our neighboring countries Finland who celebrated their 100th birthday in the end of 2017, Lithuania who celebrated a week ago and Latvia who is going to have their celebrations in the end of the year. Happy birthday to our friends as well!
People in Fors MW celebrated together the birthday with sprat-egg-onion dark bread snacks, which is one of the traditional dishes - everybody here loves them! So our dear office manager Kairi made a nice surprise preparing a small gathering during lunch time. People from other offices brought cheese in our flag colors. It was very nice way to remember and thank our grand-grand parents who worked hard for the independence!

Tomorrow a big parade will take place and the weather forecast promises the temperature to falling down to -20 degrees. We all sincerely hope that the weather forecast is wrong and people tomorrow can enjoy the 100th birthday in a bit more humanly weather conditions.
We from here, in Saue, wish happy independence day to all Estonian citizens all over the world and hope that everybody finds time to celebrate the day worthily!
Long live Estonia!
