Transcript of Independence Day in Paragauy

Independence Day in Paraguay Independence Day or Día de los Independencia in Paraguay is the celebration of Paraguay from Spain in 1811 on May 14, but the celebration is not over until May 15. In Paraguay, Independence Day is celebrated very similarly to how we celebrate it . We celebrate Independence Day by going to a park at night, having a picnic, watching fireworks, and occasionally listening to a band playing. In Paraguay, they celebrate by wearing traditional clothing, having barbecues, and also watching fireworks. People celebrate when they got their independence from another, European country who had once governed them. 1. Paraguayans celebrate Independence Day for by setting aside two days to celebrate. People wear traditional clothes such as fancy shirts, broad-brimmed straw hats, and ponchos for the men, and blouses with lace inserts and full skirts for the women. Also, a special dish, called Sopa Paraguay, is served. They eat this on Independence Day because it is only occasionally that the poor can afford to buy the eggs and cheese that they have to get to make the soup. During La Día de los independencia, people play football(soccer), have barbecues, and watch fireworks. They also remember the day when their fearless military leader led them into a blood-less protest that finally got them their independence. Sopa Paraguay you will need
