Happy Esperanto Day
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 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?
Yes, it is done by many afaik :)
Project Gutenburg also has a few free e-books in Esperanto. http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/search/?query=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 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.
I began Esperanto last Sunday by chance. Now I have just learnt it was Esperanto day. So Happy Esperanto Day!
Happy Esperanto Day to you, too, John. I was wondering, is there a book concerning the history of Esperanto that you would recommend?
In fact, yesterday was the only day since the course was published that I didn't study Esperanto... My fault ;S
Felicxega esperanta tago al cxiuj!!!
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.
