There is nothing as American as celebrating the Fourth Of July.
The whole world knows this is our favorite holiday. We make movies and songs about it, and rub our day off, cookouts and fireworks in everyone’s faces. That is, unless you’re the poor chump in your office who didn’t get the day off.
As a matter of fact, if you’re not quick, you might have the most random Summer vacation days in the world. Not to worry: there are actually quite a few other “Independence Days” in the Summer. Some of them are in places we wouldn’t necessarily recommend going this Summer, like Afghanistan.
Others are in places we’d use any excuse to visit. Flip through and check ’em out.
France – Has perhaps the second most famous “independence” celebration after us: July 14 – Bastille Day
Tonga – Was never anybody’s dang colony! But they celebrate their National Day on June 4 in memory of a late King
