I feel really honoured: I have only been to Lithuania for one week, and already the whole country put up a huge display of affection by celebrating my birthday today (6 July). All over Lithuania, people put up flags and gathered in the evening to sing.
Thank you! Ačiū!
Others claim this was for King Mindaugas, who was crowned as the only King of Lithuania on 6 July 1253. But this was so long ago that I doubt this could possibly justify the festivities today.
