Nations’ Birthday ♪

Hello, I would like to congratulate the birthday of America;


4th-july-wishes


Happy Declaration from Great Briton on July 4th, 1776!!!  I hope all American friends are going to have FABULOUS Independence Day Celebration♪♪♪
I wish I could enjoy the fire works and all. I may be able to watch it on TV news if I were lucky. Our National foundation Day is February 11th.



Haha, using this occasion, I checked ours and read this page
I was happy to learn our history and  here's a quote of little part,
"The origin of National Foundation Day (in Japan) is New Year's Day in the traditional lunisolar calendar. On that day, the foundation of Japan by Emperor Jimmu (first Emperor) was celebrated based on Nihonshoki (日本書紀), which states that Emperor Jimmu ascended to the throne on the first day of the first month (around BC.660).  In the Meiji period (19th century), the Japanese government designated the day as a National Holiday."
Well, we don't have much celebration for this holiday, which I think is a little pity considering the old history.   Have a great Holiday, dear friends in America,

Thank you for your wonderful wishes, my dear friend Miyako, and also those of Eva and Fiona. It's so very kind!

I love the ancient history of Japan, although I need to learn more about it. You all have such a rich and sophisticated history. I need to do more reading on it.

Thank you again, my friend!

Dearest Miyako,

Indeed it is a pity that you don't have at least one day of great celebration as an entire nation. Just a great day to meditate the Freedom and the goodness that we, as families all enjoy.
Thanks for your well wishes.
Love to you from your American friend,

Mariette

Dear Miyako,
Thanks for the best wishes for a FABULOUS Independence Day celebration. As long as the weather holds my little celebration should be enjoyable. I love getting together with friends and family and sharing food and friendship. I was surpised to read that Japan doesn't do more to celebrate National Foundation Day. Your culture has so many beautiful ways of celebrating I think I expected there would be a big celebration for your nation's birthday.
Have a great week my dear bs. Love you always

Happy birthday to USA!! Thank you for writing about Japan's National Foundation Day. I had very little knowledge about this day...how bad!
I hope you get to watch fireworks on TV news :-) I probably do the same. (I prefer staying home rather than going out to crowded place. Hehe.)

A self-less quote from a Japanese citizen. Sounds impossible but true. God Bless Miyako! :)
