Blue Canari

Blue Canari (foaled 2 February 2001) is a French Thoroughbred racehorse and sire. In a racing career which lasted from October 2003 until August, 2006 he ran fourteen times and won two races. He won one minor race as a two-year-old and was beaten in his first three races of 2004. In June 2004, however, he recorded an upset 33/1 victory in the Prix du Jockey Club. He failed to finish better than third in eight further races, was sold in the autumn of 2006, and became a breeding stallion in Switzerland.

Esperanto culture

Esperanto speakers have their own culture, on top of being a "gateway" to the culture of the entire world (inherently more-so than most other dominant languages are). As examples, gufujoj exist, and Esperanto speakers will talk about what would normally be considered extremely touchy subjects without restraint (such as political talk or questions about racism), even if they wouldn't do this in their home country or another language they know.

In general, Esperanto culture places a huge focus on reading, education (especially of news, facts and languages from around the world), tolerance and acceptance (especially of people completely different from yourself). Esperanto speakers are also more prone to being against globalization and culture-washing or throwing away one's native language, meaning that while they want to be able to talk to people they also want those people to "stay unique".


Esperantujo (IPA: [esperanˈtujo]) or Esperantio [esperanˈtio] (English: Esperanto-land) is the community of speakers of the Esperanto and their culture, as well the places and institutions where the language is used. The term is used "as if it were a country."Although it does not occupy its own area of Earth's surface, it can be said to constitute the 120 countries which have their own national Esperanto association.

Zamenhof Day

Zamenhof Day (Esperanto: Zamenhofa Tago), also called Esperanto Book Day, is celebrated on 15 December, the birthday of Esperanto creator L. L. Zamenhof. It is the most widely celebrated day in Esperanto culture. On this day, Esperantists hold information sessions and cultural gatherings to promote literature in Esperanto.The history of celebrating Esperanto on Zamenhof's birthday can be traced back to 17 December 1878, when at a birthday party for his 19th birthday he presented to his friends his Lingwe uniwersala, the first version of his international language. By 1887, this language had evolved into what is now recognized as Esperanto when he published the Unua Libro. 15 December previously used to be also known as Esperanto Day, but that is now celebrated on 26 July, the day Unua Libro was published.
