happy independence day ALBANIA!

Happy Independence day check out what I wore


Dear Love Bugs, 

Today is a super special day for all us ALBANIANS. 100 years ago today we got our Independence from Turkey.  We fought a long time for this and we are generally a very proud Nation. No matter where you live today (all over the world) we know we are Albanian (usually another Albanian can spot another one 100 miles away). Today in honor of this I decided to wear some traditional pieces of my Grandfather's costume. There is so much history and tradition that has stayed with us even longer than our country has been free. We are talking centuries and centuries of traditions and culture.

Here are some of our costumes:  (none of thes pictures are mine)

 A different style of our traditions this isnt worn by my family I am not sure exactly where either
This is more like what my family would wear.
