ROMANIA-NATIONAL HOLYDAY-FEATURE

Romanian children watch the military parade to mark the National Holyday of Romania in Bucharest, December 1, 2012. Tha National Day of Romania, celebrated on December 1, commemorates the Great Union of Transylvania and other provinces with Romania, that was declared on December 1, 1918 by the assembly of the delegates of ethnic Romanians held in Alba Iulia. This holiday was set after the 1989 Romanian Revolution and it marks the unification of Transylvania, but also of the provinces of Basarabia and Bucovina with the Romanian Kingdom, in 1918. Prior to 1918, the national holiday of Romania was set to be on May 10, which had a double meaning: it was the day on which Carol I set foot on the Romanian soil (in 1866), and it was the day on which the prince ratified the Declaration of Independence (from the Ottoman Empire) in 1877. In Communist Romania, the date of the national holiday was set to August 23 to mark the 1944 overthrow of the pro-fascist government of Marshal Ion Antonescu. AFP PHOTO / DANIEL MIHAILESCU
