The Spanish Constitution is passed

Today is a national a holiday throughout Spain in commemoration of 6th December 1978 when the Spanish people voted in a national referendum to approve the draft constitution which had been passed by the interim parliament representatives in October of the same year. 

This Spanish constitution provided the way forward for the creation of a democratic system in Spain and while not many Spaniards participate in the constitution day celebrations which tend to be formal, protocolary affairs, the great majority of the (non-facist) over forties remember the 1978 referendum with passion and regard their constitution with pride.
