9 May: European Day?

Yesterday, May 9, was the European day.
The draft Constitution for Europe mentions it as one of the symbol of the European Union. For American friends, it is a sort of July 4, only for Europeans.

What is the point? Not a single mention of this fact in any of the European Countries I know. Not a single effort in the media or in the public sphere at large.
It is only a symbol, one may say. But a symbol is already quite a lot in these time of Eurocrisis.

The European commission marked this event by switching to the '.eu' internet domain. Read here.

So, if you don't find the website of the European Commission anymore, don't be afraid. It is only because they are celebrating too hard.
