…or properly more accurately, the US is celebrating kicking out the British while holding hands with the Irish who also kicked out the British. In reality, the British are most likely not too happy about being reminded about this every year, but tough!
Normally 4th of July is celebrated across the US using amazing fireworks, mouth dripping BBQ, loud music and family reunions. It’s a time were neighbours reach out and get together for food and kids playing.
And this year would be no different if it hadn’t been for the arrival of Hurricane Arthur, who decided to kick off the hurricane season a little early by battering the East Coast.
We use 4th of July to celebrate our arrival to the US three years ago and a new chapter in our family adventures. We still have many more chapters to write, but it has been a wonderful journey to date.
We can proudly say “Happy 4th of July” to all of our American friends, family, brothers and colleagues. It has truly been a pleasure to get to know you and thank you for greeting us with open arms … especially after a few sips of the local moonshine 🙂
“Every good citizen makes his country’s honor his own, and cherishes it not only as precious but as sacred. He is willing to risk his life in its defence and is conscious that he gains protection while he gives it” – Andrew Jackson (American 7th US President, 1767–1845)
