Happy National Day to Tunisians all over.
On this day in 1956, Tunisia accomplished autonomy from almost a hundred years of French colonial rule. Today denotes the northernmost African country’s 66th year of independence.
Alongside bright climate and golden beaches, Tunisia boasts a rich history: Roman archaeological sites containing temples, mosaics and perhaps the biggest coliseums on the planet, El Jem, an amphitheater that is as yet utilized today.
Tunisians traditionally celebrate this day by waving the public banner, holding parades, and laying wreaths in tribute. For some, it’s daily of remembrance and gratitude.
