Boludo's Day

Far away from the living Argentine, those who do things well have their recognition.

As we are

That the  word   boludo  has different and multiple senses is already something we all know. There are different  boludos  , for very varied reasons. However, what many do not know is that, too, they have their day: since 2009,  June 27  is celebrated  Boludo's Day  . But not from any kind of boludo.

The initiative was born among the coworkers of a digital agency with a very noble goal: to vindicate the boludos who do things right, without pretending to take advantage. It would be the contract of the Argentine prototype of the vivo. From their website, they aspire to pay tribute to all those boludos who, for being honest, following the rules or seeking the common good, end up being the object of mockery and contempt on the part of compatriots much more vivid and eloquent.

You will wonder how they chose this particular date. Everything goes back to 1806 when, during the first English invasion, the authorities of the  Viceroyalty of Río de la Plata , with the impetus to do things right and generate dialogue, ended up giving  Buenos Aires to the British. There they identify the first boludo patrio imported directly from  Spain , Viceroy Sobremonte, who left the capital and retired to  Córdoba .

So things, who will fit the sayo, happy Boludo's Day !
