Happy Birthday Czechoslovakia

Všechno nejlepší Československo!  Happy Birthday Czechoslovakia!

Today is the 100th anniversary of the founding of Czechoslovakia, specifically the First Republic, following the end of WWI.

It used to seem weird to me to celebrate the establishment of a country which no longer exists.  It still does a bit but not as much as before.  Personally, I still think it would have been better for Czechia and Slovakia to have stayed together.  But that's just my opinion.

In 1993, the Velvet Divorce split the country in to the Czech and Slovak Republics.  There will be firework celebrations across the country tonight.  I guess in Slovakia as well but who knows?  Even Google got in on the 100th with today's Google Doodle.
