RE: [Discussion Post] What is your favorite event in your country's history?

in #movies5 months ago

Today is the 4th of July. For those of you who are unaware, that is the day when, in 1776, the United States declared its independence

I’m very interested, do you somehow celebrate the Boston Tea Party? After all, this event has become an iconic event of American history...

Sort:  

The Boston Tea Party is taught in history classes, and you're definitely right that it's an iconic event. But as far as I know, it's not normally commemorated with any sort of widespread celebration.

July 4 marks the day in 1776 that the Declaration of Independence was signed. Here it is, read by a bunch of celebrities:

Of course, nowadays most people call the holiday, "July 4th" instead of "Independence Day" and it's mostly just an excuse for a barbecue. ; -)

I did not understand why my comment caused a negative reaction by @ georgemales :-(

I do not either. Sorry that @georgemales downvoted you.

Do you have a favorite event in your country's history?

For our country, this date is May 9th. That day, with arms in hand, we defended the right to exist.
