Luxembourg National Day

Today, June 23rd is Luxembourg National Day. It is a public holiday and everything is closed today. They began the celebration last evening with music and fireworks, however we didn't go because the fireworks didn't start until MIDNIGHT!! Crazy! But we heard that they were very good from friends of ours who went. Today we took the girls to the parade and met up with some friends from Chicago. The parade wasn't quite what we are used to back home, but the girls still had fun. The Luxembourg military (yes- Luxembourg does have a small military) and all of the police, fire and rescue personnel were there with all of their gear and equipment.
As our time is quickly coming to an end in Luxembourg, we are trying to experience all that we can before we return to the U.S. Luxembourg is a beautiful little country and we will definately miss it!!
