Last year, the revolution that putted Mubarak down started on this day.
From facebook, a few walked in the streets, a few others followed, people got together and numbers grow into millions. That's the 25th of January the day of the Egyptian Revolution and on the 28th of January the Egyptian Cops started killing people.
On 11/02/2011 Mubarak Stepped down ( rather was foreced to )
Read the date backwards it is still the same date.
So these are the major events in Egypt
thats' why they are celebrating 2day xD 25th.
If you don't know anything about this revolution which started exactly a year ago.
Watch this video
Edit: I forgot to mention everything was cut, all communication methods. Mobiles, internet.. etc. Were all shut down for a week or two.
