    For those still in Portugal and wonder what all the celebrations are about this weekend.

    Today is a national holiday - April 25th

    Portugal is today celebrating the 42 anniversary of the Revolution that saw the country move from dictatorship to democracy. Known as the Carnation Revolution, on 25 April 1974 the Portuguese military and citizens rose up to overthrow the fascist government.
