Romania's National Day - On December 1st, Romania celebrates its National Day (Great Union Day), a day representing the freedom and unification of all regions.
In Romania, December 1st is more than the official beginning of winter. On this day, in 1918, Romania commemorates the unification of Transylvania, Bessarabia, and Bukovina, with the Old Romanian Kingdom (composed of Wallachia and Moldavia). But despite the fact that almost 100 years passed since the Great Union, Romania's National Day wasn't always celebrated on December 1st.
