Fourth of July
I've always liked to think about the 4th of July as a teen celebrating leaving home and getting their own place. I don't know why really, its just an image that sort of sticks in my mind. We don't celebrate it over here in the UK because well, isn't it us they are celebrating their independence from after all. What parent throws a party when their kid moves out. They instead sit back, watching proudly and are there for them when things get bad.
I have a great many American friends and on this day, I wish them a safe, fun and happy holiday.
