The Republic of Molossia celebrated it's 38th anniversary on 26 May 2015 XXXVII, albeit rather quietly. As compared to parties usually held to celebrate our nation's birthday, celebrations this year were low key. Founder's Day 2015 fell on a Tuesday, not the best day on which to hold a fête. Instead, a private family barbecue was held the day before, on 25 May. Besides the usual burgers and hot dogs, Molossian kids painted rocks to line the Trans-Molossia Trail and virtually everyone joined into a game of American football - our traditional sport of Molossian Broomball being skipped because the ball was missing. Following the barbeque there was a showing of the micronation-style movie "Passport to Pimlico", wrapping up the day's festivities. A public event, in loose conjunction to Founder's Day, will take place on Saturday, 30 May. This event will include a tour of the nation, as part of Obscura Day. Obscura Day itself is an extension of the website Atlas Obscura, which profiles unusual destinations around the world. Molossia is one of those places and we will welcome visitors to our country that day and show off our nation.
In the meantime, let's all wish a very Happy Birthday to the Republic of Molossia, our home, our land, our heart, mighty and magnificent!
