Galician Literature Day
Each year, on the 17th of May, in Galicia we celebrate the Galician Literature Day. It is a sort of homage to the Galician literature, language, and culture in general (that has so much to offer).
Traditionally, each year is dedicated a to personality related to these fields, that has played an important role on the promotion of the Galician culture and language. Another requirement: only deceased writers can have such recognition.
