Yugoslavia Holidays & Festivals (Concluding part)

Day of the Macedonian

Revolutionary Struggle

The somewhat communistic title of this crucial festival on October 23 doesn't hide the fervor of the national holiday, commemorating the first serious, revolutionary attempt to overthrow the Ottoman rulers and take back the country. The Revolutionary Organization began in Salonica in 1893 with just six firebrand members, who later set the population's hearts ablaze with freedom, resulting in the Macedonia we know today.
