Casimir Pulaski Day


Pulaski aided the American Revolution, despite being from Poland, and despite not speaking a lick of English (or so the story goes). We celebrate his birthday (which actually isn't until the 6th) in Chicago because we have one of the the largest Polish populations in the world, second only to Warsaw.

I am not Polish, nor did I truly celebrate this holiday.
But, it gave me an excuse to post the video of a song that has been stuck in my head all day long. Maybe you've heard it?
