Writer's Block: Let freedom ring

How do you celebrate Independence Day in your country?


We celebrated CANADA DAY three days ago. With fireworks and Pride Weekend and lots of people drank lots of beer and wore red and white. We didn't fight for our independence; it was awarded to us by being a good little fledgling country. The Queen has not been involved in Canada since the 60s, and she officially cut the cord in 1982. We're still a young country, but we're very good at what we do.
Too bad about Harper, though.
Anyway, thanks, LJ, for recognising Canada, as usual. BUY THE RED WHITE AND BLUE PICNIC BASKET

yeah yeah, I know, LJ isn't Canadian

Yeah, I totally realise that, too, but I think LJ would use IP addresses instead of profile locations for that sort of thing (the most attended school on LJ is Hogwarts....)

The internet in general is pretty biased toward the United States. Hell, America isn't even exclusively the U.S. but that's what people tend to automatically think. Now, I'm glad to be a USian, but sometimes the arrogant centrism for the country gets out of hand. HOORAY FOR CANADIANS FROM CANADIA!

Honestly I think Canada is a rather neglected country in its awesomeness. ♥
