Not only is Nov. 11 Veterans Day in the United States, it's Narodowe Święto Niepodległości or National Independence Day in Poland. It commemorates Poland's assumption of independent statehood on Nov. 11, 1918, after 123 years of partitions by Austria-Hungary, Germany, and Russia. It's the date when many believe Poland was put on the map again.

In Poland, it's a cause for parades, cannon firings and gun salutes, not to mention a little wodka and good food. So break out your Polish flag and American flag, and find a Polish restaurant or, better yet, make your own Polish meal at home. And here is more about other Eastern European Independence Days.
