April 25th is ANZAC Day here in New Zealand, to commemorate the landing of the ANZAC corps during the Battle of Gallipoli, during the WWI.
And it's public holiday in Italy, too. In Italy April 25th is the Liberation Day, to commemorate the Liberation of Milano from the Nazi army after a partisan insurrection. This day marks the end of the WWII in Italy. And is also a commemoration for the almost 400.000 Italians dead during the WWII (and also 700.000 during the WWI)
Unfortunately we don't have a Liberation biscuits, but at least our commemorations are not held at dawn
