Prešeren Fund prize winners see Culture Day as either holiday or farce

Ljubljana, 7 February - The winners of this year's Prešeren Fund Prizes, given out for achievements in the last two years, agree that culture should be celebrated throughout the year and not only on Culture Day, which is observed on 8 February. As regards the holiday itself, they have mixed feelings, from considering it a farce to a true holiday.
