How do Portuguese people celebrate Freedom Day?

Freedom Day in Portugal is April 25. It’s a national holiday with both state-sponsored and spontaneous commemorations praising the elemental civil liberties and political freedoms achieved after the revolution. But honestly at home we don’t really do anything.

One of the greatest examples of the Freedom Day is that, while Portugal was under the regime of Salazar and people who thought like him, which is what we got “freed” of, there was a bridge being built. The bridge was named after the regime’s leader “António Oliveira de Salazar” but, soon after the Carnation Revolution — another name for the Freedom Day — in 1974, the bridge was renamed “25 de Abril” Bridge — that literally means April 25 —, the day the revolution had occurred. A symbol of those times was captured on film, with citizens removing the big brass “Salazar” sign from one of the main pillars of the bridge and painting a provisional “25 de Abril” in its place.

In Portugal, many avenues, squares, and streets are named after the day of the revolution — 25 April.

The revolution is also frequently called the “Carnation Revolution” because instead of the soldiers rebelling shooting bullets, they shot carnations therefore not harming anyone. But there were people that died during the Revolution though.

Tax Freedom Day is the first day of the year in which a nation as a whole has earned enough income to pay its annual tax burden. The concept was introduced by the Tax Foundation—a Washington, D.C.-based tax research group—as a tool for illustrating the proportion of national income diverted to fund the annual cost of government.
