It Takes More Than Two to Tango in Argentina

On Saturday, December 2, a massive amount of Argentines took to the streets to participate in a mass tango dance to celebrate the dance in “milonga.” Milonga is the more commonly used name for the Great National Milonga, which is an annual event. December 2 is National Tango Day in Argentina. Argentines celebrate this famous dance, even memorializing it with a national holiday because the dance originated in Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, in the early 19th century by the working class. The Argentines are celebrating their culture and their history through their celebration of this holiday each year.
