  1. Well, us Canadians I noticed don’t celebrate as much as the Americans, but I’m hoping to go with the family to the local fireworks for Canada day.

  2. I love the postcards and their antiquity. :) I hope you have the rest of a wonderful Summer, stay cool and enjoy the 4th July Celebrations. In Portugal, we celebrate on the 10th June but it’s more a day of Portugal itself. We celebrate Portugal, the communities around the world, (Portuguese immigrants all over) and it also commerates the death of Portuguese National literary icon Luís de Camões. This day is usually a day where Portuguese communities all over the world join together to have a party. In Portugal itself there are many festivals celebrating other events in the country falling at least once a month. I don’t know about England, even if I have been living here 21 years.

    1. Hey Ana! Thank you so much for sharing, That is interesting information :) I love to know more about other culture.. So, from warm sunny Portugal you moved to a gray dark England. Even i’ts so gray there (weather) i LOVE UK !!! wish to visit there again one day – ** Portugal also sound a great place to visit

  3. First we have a long mountain hike. Then, We have a town parade here, then we cook out. Then I torch, rolled by an evening swim…we can see the local fireworks show from the pool! Then, we drive to a friend’s house up the mountain, where we can see fireworks all across the valley! Busy day!

    1. Wooow :) That sound like a big fun day … I love the part that up there on the mountain – Lucky You!!!
