National Independence Day...

is coming up on March 25th, when we* will all be celebrating the throwing-off of the Turkish yoke!**

In preparation, at Phoebe's kindergarten, a woman with a drum is teaching the tinies how to march in a straight line while they swing their arms in miltary fashion and salute the flag. They have also been instructed*** that there is to be no talking in the ranks...

* Possibly not including Greek Muslims (i.e. ethnic Turks)
** Is this what one does with a yoke? I'm not sure. I know what to do with a yolk, of course, but yokes are another matter entirely...
*** Bellowed at, actually
