No and I reckon if you asked any teen here who Captain Cook was they'd not have a clue.
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.
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
