Portugal Day in Boston

Tomorrow, June 10th, is Portugal Day. It is a big holiday in Portugal in honor of Luis de Camoes, the writer of Portugal’s national epic poem, Os Lusiadas (The Lusiads).  Since there is such a big Portuguese population here in southern New England, it is a big deal in these communities.  And since my father is Portuguese, I try to remember these important days.

I saw this while leaving work today.

So maybe tomorrow, in honor of the holiday, I will enjoy some good home-cooked Portuguese food, and maybe some wine.
