Donostia-San Sebastián. Aberri Eguna, or Day of the Basque Homeland, is celebrated on Easter Sunday, this year April 21st, and as every year, some Basque clubs celebrate on that day. However, in other cases, Euskal Etxeas celebrate either before or after depending on their local traditions. This year Basque clubs in Argentina in Cañuelas, Pergamino, Posadas and Gerora in Cordoba already celebrated, but the majority of clubs will do so in the coming weeks.
