Yay Macedonia! -- the only country named after a fruit salad :-)

Today is also the anniversary of the best thing Italy did in WWII. Funnily, we don't have a name for the day, except "Otto settembre" (but if you say "l'otto settembre" everybody knows what you're talking about). At least that makes it easy to remember the date.

I think its the other way around - salad named after region.

You are right, of course. But as a child, I became familiar with fruit salad ("macedonia" in Italian) much earlier than with the region, so when I encountered the name of the region my natural assumption was that it had been named after the fruit salad :-)
