It's Esperanto Day!

On July 26, 1887, Louis Zamenhof published the first book of Esperanto, now called the Unua Libro.

It's an excellent day to study Esperanto!

I went to bed after finishing the tree at 2am this morning (UTC +10). It was only when i woke up that i noticed the coincidence of doing so on this date.

It is, indeeed, an excellent day to study Esperanto.

I didn't know that, thank you for the post. I guess it'd be a good day to advance a little more on the tree. :)

I read somewhere that one buys a book in Esperanto to celebrate Esperanto Day, is this true? Also does anyone know of a good website that I can order Esperanto books online?

Jes, la retejo de UEA estas bona, kaj — legu la artikolon La Unua Libro ĉe La Balta Ondo, ĝi estas bona.

I thought that the Esperanto day was celebrated on 15 December, the birthday of Zamenhof...

December 15 is Zamenhof-Tago. It was at his 19th birthday party that he revealed the first version of Esperanto. Today is the anniversary of the publication of the first book, so Esperanto Day.

I like that in Esperanto-Lando we will have at least two public holidays, Esperanto day and Zamenhof day.

Happy Esperanto Day to you, too, John. I was wondering, is there a book concerning the history of Esperanto that you would recommend?

I wish that Esperanto was a world language like it was supposed to be, I love Esperanto! It is so close to English and German in so many ways.
