The celebration of Independence Day
November 11 was established a state holiday for the first time in 1937.
Feast is celebrated throughout the country but the most important celebrations are held in Warsaw, Józef Piłsudski Square in front of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
All Saints' Day is celebrated on 1 November in honour of all the saints,
known and unknown. It is a national holiday in many historically Catholic countries.
The next day commemorates the departed faithful who have not yet been purified
and reached heaven. Christians who celebrate All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day do so in the fundamental belief that there is a prayerful spiritual bond between those in purgatory (the 'Church Suffering'), those in heaven (the 'church triumphant'), and the living (the 'church militant').

The teddy bear was invented by a German woman with polio. Her name was Margarete Steiff. She got polio when she was a little girl and had to use a wheelchair. She was blessed, however, with an innovative and creative mind. She worked as a seamstress sewing clothes, but started making pin cushions shaped like animals. Her little animals became quite popular, and she started making more and more toys including the bear.
invented – wynaleziony wheelchair – wózek inwalidzki blessed – błogosławiony creative mind – twórczy umysł seamstress – krawcowa sew – szyć pin cushion – poduszka do szpilek shape – kształt
