Yes--we call it Columbus Day, even though we were "found" by Amerigo Vespuci. And Leif Ericson. And some Irish dude. And who knows who else.
No and I reckon if you asked any teen here who Captain Cook was they'd not have a clue.
Australia Day actually celebrates the arrival of the first fleet from Britain, not discovery day
I think you will find it isColumbus Day
4Th of july :)
Here in the US we don't. We have 4th of July that celebrates the declaration of independence but nothing to celebrate the day we actually started fighting or won independence.
Ha, I read that as founded. Derp.
I was in Cairns 26th January. What a party!
Kangaroo court in the shrimp on the barbi day.
No, we don't celebrate Australia day
Yes, it's called a birthday ;)
4th of July for us Mericans!
That was the day we announced our separation from GB. And the traditional beginning of the Revolutionary War.
She knows of the 4th of July; but DO YOU CELEBRATE WHEN AMERICA WAS FOUND?
Well, there is Columbus Day but I'm mixed on that... a lot of Native Americans suffered from European conquest so I'll just stick with the 4th...
To which the answer might be "No, because there is no clear date to choose since Europeans have been visiting north America for over a thousand years."
Guilty as charged, your Honor...
Thats when we became a nation, there is no clear record of when america was found because native american indians were here for a long time before settlers came in a killed them all
It was conquistadors that started that, not settlers. North America included Mexico and Canada at that time, don't forget.
