17 July - National Joy Day in Nicaragua
On July 17, 1979, Somoza left the country and flew to the United States, confident that the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) would overthrow him. He left behind 45 years of familial dictatorship and a puppet president, Francisco Urquio, who lasted only 43 hours in the presidency. Two days after his departure, on July 19, the Sandinista revolution triumphed.
Now Nicaragua celebrates National Joy Day on July 17, when dictator Anastasio Somoza fled the country. In honor of this holiday, numerous festivities and cultural, sporting and entertainment events take place throughout Nicaragua.
