Athough the Fourth of July is strickly an American Birthday, the birth of your country, we here today, on our little Island off the coast of New Zealand are going to celebrate your holiday.
We have an American couple, from Boston, who run the local lodge in our bay and we all this afternoon are having a Fourth of July party with hotdogs and hamburgers and all the party trimmings....so there.!
Our National Birth Day is Waitangi Day February 6th, the date of the Treaty between the British and the Native New Zealand people. A treaty that marked the beginning of a civil war , not the end.
Sadly that day has become a fiasco full of protests and cra..p.
Our most important holiday, which is celebrated lovingly by everbody, which we all believe is the Birthday our our little Nation is ANZAC day,
The 25th April.
We remember the thousands of New Zealanders and Australians who died fighting at Galipoli in World War One. The 25th April 1915 was the day of the ill fated landing.
That day was truly was the birthday of our nation.
Have a great day.
