I'm not sure how they rank, but I know Halloween is the second biggest economically now (behind Christmas).

Shouldn't Thanksgiving be the biggest when it comes yo the economy because the last few years Black Friday has started on Thanksgiving?

That counts toward Christmas.  Halloween and Christmas have people spend money specifically on toward those Holidays. Outside of food and travel Thanksgiving doesn't have as large a commercial element.

I don't see how they'd care unless they like history or America in particular.



Why would people from another country care about another countries independence, unless they're like a history buff. I'm American and never gave a thought about another countries independence (or their celebration of it)

>Oppression

I wish the British Government would oppress me like that.

The rebels were not entitled to the Rights of Englishman. Defying the King, throwing tea in the harbour and allying with the French each disqualify you from being English (it's only OK to defy the King and cut his head off if he's Scottish). 

Had they behaved themselves and asked nicely likely Canada and Australia did the whole sorry affair could have been avoided. Good manners go a long way.

All in all we just appreciate that you use the correct dd/mm/yy format for your birthday. 'Fourth of July' sounds so much better than 'July fourth' doesn't it?

Kings should never complain about "entitlements" they are literally born into power.

however you decide to interpret it, its a great day to get together and celebrate, feast, and enjoy good company topped off with fireworks. i have family and friends in the military, so its taken seriously.

 

i hope your fourth was a good.

The only thing they should be entitled to is a blade cutting through their neck!

Not without representation and not with our tax dollars!

Canada still worships the British monarch! Queen Elizabeth is our official head of state. Need to get rid of them.

I'm curious about the thought process behind this as well. It's not like those countries don't have their own historical moments to pay attention to, let alone ones from other countries.

If in the US, the independence day of another unrelated country is celebrated or is a big deal, perhaps then I would wonder if it's the same in other countries. But I'm pretty sure that's not the case, so yeah.
