Perfect - I hope you are having a wonderful Fourth of July Kamaly. I used to read home decorating magazines all the time and I was always so impressed with the way Americans go all out for the Fourth in home decoration, parades etc. I think Canada is there now although I have never been invited to a private Canada Day party.

..excellent perspective Bits. We don't decorate our houses on Oz Day (26 Jan) either, not many people have flags around their houses. Lots of places have community awards or citizenship ceremonies, then it's off to the beach, or fire up the barbie, or sit inside with the aircon cranked up and watch the Australian Open tennis. Hope you had a good day. h

Thanks Cal and Clancy (LOL!) ! I definitely don't go for any of the decorations either, but thought this perspective of the flag blowing in the breeze was pretty cool. H - your Oz Day does sound an awful lot like our Fourth of July, and we finally got a nice sunny day to make it a beach day, too! Lots of parades, and fireworks or bonfires, but most towns actually don't have their fireworks on the 4th - they tend to be spread out over hte course of hte week. Don't ask me why - much too confusing. I went to a parade and bonfire at a seaside town - so combined a lot of the festivities. and now there's still another day off. I love 3 day week-ends!

Great photo, I am confused (thought I was someone else) too hard for me. Have a good one, WFSR

Belated 'Happy Fourth' greetings from Nottingham, UK. Over here, we don't even celebrate St George's Day. More's the pity! Probably to do with Political Correctness i.e. the politicians not wishing to upset our ethnic population.

Which is kind of ironic, given that this photo was uploaded by BNP ;)

lol, Thanks Snowy Woman. (Now I want to know why it's called snowy river - when was the last time they had any snow there??)

and Thanks geomancer and who. yeah, geomancer - it's now getting to be non-PC to call our day off in the autumn Columbus Day for just that reason. I think some communities are now calling it 'Autumn Fest' or something (which is what it is, but still...). But of course, it will always be PC for us to celebrate Independence from those British ! ;D (and hmmmm Who - now what's not politically correct about Bank National de Paris? )
