Happy 4th of July Y’all! After Turkey Day/Thanksgiving, this is my 2nd favourite holiday. And what exactly do British people do on the 4th of July? Well, allow me to school you. You are welcome mate.
Well, the Brits that I know are awfully sad on the 4th of July for a variety of reasons. They are pretty downcast about this day and dread it every year. So many memories, dreams, lost aspirations of that day and of course its historical significance-its almost too much to bear. Enter a cup of PG Tips. With that being said, on this day, British people (some) sit around and cry into their tea over their lost colony. Kid not. Then their sadness turns to anger when they recall how we dumped their precious tea in that harbour. ‘Quite wasteful those Yanks can be’, they say, then sigh audibly. British people (not all) are in utter disbelief as to why we Yanks would want to leave the British Empire exactly 230 years ago. But then again, most adolescents rage against their parents and eventually grow out of it. So, as British people (not all), wait for us Americans to return home to the Motherland…American people far and near are celebrating their independence from the British today-on this day: THE FOURTH of JULY. I mean, we Americans left you Brits for a lot of reasons. You guys taxed the hell out of us (among other things). So…WE OUT. PEACE.
Happy 4th of July to ALL my American and British friends! Love you loads. x
