Piłudski or Dmowski?

I am more of a Piłsudski guy but I think 15th August would be a better date for Independence Day (much warmer). :)

Accidentally. in Poznan city, people consume tons of St Martin`s croissants on 11 Nov - the custom originated in 19th century, long before the independence that Poland regained in 1918.

According to an article in ethnology that I read years ago, making the rogal a symbol of Independence Day was a conscious strategy to de-emphasize Piłdudski*, who was not popular in the region due to his lukewarm attitude toward the Wielkopolska Uprising without which Poznań would have remained Posen.

*nov 11 is the day he formed a government for the newly independent country
