Enlightening the burden

Today Bulgarians take to the streets against their socialist government;
Protesting Bulgarian college teachers and students are organizing a mass march under the slogan " Wake up " on Friday, November 1, when the country marks National Enlighteners Day.....
Bulgaria has been celebrating the National Enlighteners Day as a national holiday since 1922 and teachers and students have seen parades on this occasion since the 1930s.
The holiday was suspended by the Bulgarian Communist regime in 1945. After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, celebration was resumed in 1990 and made official again in 1995.
Protesting Bulgarian college students have staged partial or full blockades at a number of universities in Sofia and across the country, demanding the resignation of the socialist-led government and the dissolution of Parliament.
And the sugar high should help;
Previously completely ignored in Bulgaria, Halloween has enjoyed escalating popularity over the years as the country made a transition to Western-like lifestyle.
