Was speaking to a British person at work today and he told me that they don't celebrate Thanksgiving. I was totally shocked because that must suck for Brits missing out on all the great food, football and electronic sales that makes Thanksgiving such a great holiday. I think every country should celebrate it and I get the impression that Europe is being kind of ignorant not wanting to celebrate it possibly because they think they are better than America. I don't know what do u think?
But then the British guy said that they don't celebrate July 4 either. To be honest I had never actually thought about that but I guess I was under the impression that other countries celebrated it, especially Europe . Like I know July 4th is an American holiday but I thought over countries might celebrate it too because well... we are America. So its kind of an important holiday, kind of like Christmas or presidents day. And whats not to love about fireworks? Don't tell me euoropeans are firework Nazi's lol
Come to think of it, do they celebrate Christmas in britian? I've never actually heard of a British person celebrating Christmas ever but I'm sure they do it in Europe don't they? I'm just glad I live in America because we are blessed with so many great holidays that the rest of the world are denied! Be thankful ppl!

Why would the UK celebrate 4th of July in the first place? They weren't trying to secede from another country. Thanksgiving and Halloween doesn't get celebrated in a lot of places either Germany and Australia don't celebrate them either. The world isn't America. Teachers and schools really need to put this back in their lesson plans. Other countries aren't denied them their governments just don't feel the need to recognize or celebrate them especially being that all those countries being more eastern they celebrate whatever is more in line with population demographics also what events have more influenced and/or shaped a country's history. Muricans no wonder why a lot of countries find us to be obnoxious.4
