Well we know how much you Americans love the 4th of July and here in France we are gearing up to Bastille Day on the 14th of July - lots of festivities and fireworks. Oh, and maybe just the tiniest glass of red wine for me
In the UK we never really had "A DAY" to celebrate which I think is quite sad.
Do other countries have a special day, and if so what do you all do?
Looking forward to your replies

On January 26th we have "Australia Day" celebrations. For me, it's lots of activity on Sydney Harbour and Pyrotechnics / Fireworks displays at night.

We celebrate this day since 1891, but only since 1994 it is a working-free holiday (after a plebiscite in 1993). Before it was a normal working-day because most activities are held in the evening such as bonfires (sometimes along with speeches), processions with chinese lanterns (for the children) and of course fireworks everywhere!
And being a holiday now we have nothing against a good barbecue!

I just find it weird, it's not as if we don't like a good party
Someone should take the matter in hand and come up with "BRITISH" day - or something like it.
How are you fixed for organising a National Celebration???
Maybe next year!!!!
