The main idea of the XXVII Song Celebration and the XX Dance Celebration is „My Fatherland is My Love.“ These words have a personal meaning for each and every one of us.  Used by the poet Lydia Koidula they have now become a timeless anthem to the love of the fatherland which has brought people together in hard times to care for their land and continually renew it. Each and every one of us has a special relationship with our fatherland. Love and fatherland are such broad and multi-layered concepts that they only find substance through personal devotion and expression.
