Happy Glorious 25th of May!


Happy Glorious 25th of MAY!  We celebrate the magical world of Discworld and the genius of author Terry Pratchett.   The Discworld is “a flat world balanced on the backs of four elephants which, in turn, stand on the back of a giant turtle, Great A’Tuin

The 25th of May is quietly celebrated by the survivors of the People’s Revolution, which ended the reign of Lord Winder. They wear a sprig of lilac and gather at the Small Gods Cemetery to honour the Watchmen who fell: Cecil Clapman, Ned Coates, Dai Dickins, John Keel, Horace Nancyball, Billy Wiglet, and (albeit temporarily) Reg Shoe.

The slogan of the People’s Revolution is Truth, Justice, Freedom, Reasonably Priced Love, and a Hard-Boiled Egg!  (Wikipedia)

Here is a video: Discworld Tourist Guide Part 1 – Geography of Discworld to help us celebrate this Glorious 25th of May.

 

Stay Geeky and Wear Your Sprig of Lilac!
