What is your nation's 4th of July holiday equivalent?

Postby Vallermoore » Sun Jul 04, 2021 10:18 am

Ours is on the 8th of July, which is the Queen of Vallermoore's birthday, and there is time off for most people, feasting, bands, and a huge number of fireworks. The sellers of safety specs make a lot of money at this time of year. Apart from Christmas/New Year's Eve, this is the most enjoyable time of the year for the vast majority of Vallermoorians.

28th March is Imperial Constitution Day, on that in 1849, a provisional liberal parliament met in Frankfurt where the old imperial diet and federal convention met. They had met since March 1848 during the Year of the Revolutions, in which many people, both middle class and peasant revolted against absolute monarchies and created a unified German Realm as a nation-state led by Auzkhia, whose emperor was made federal president and Emperor of the Germans. They offered it to other kings, but the newly crowned Franz Josef of Auzkhia accepted it and he also made Auzkhia a constitutional monarchy after his reactionary uncle abdicated to save and to keep revolutionaries from splitting up the country. The new emperor was young but he was relatively conservative until his successors.

The equivalent to the 4° of July in Australia is Labor Day. In Australia, Labor Day is observed, in congruence with most of the rest of the world, on May 1°. Also known as International Workers' Day, Labor Day serves as a celebration of social progress and the historic achievements of workers and labor unions. The date is especially poignant as, on Labor Day in 1923, a united front of workers and defecting soldiers - refusing to carry out government orders to fire on the masses - enacted a peaceful revolution against the authoritarian Hughes government and ushered in the present syndicalist republic. Typically, the entire week between Labor Day and Anzac Day (April 25°) is set aside for national celebration, in addition to most elections for state and federal government. Capital cities will generally play host to fireworks displays, parades, festivals, and award ceremonies, amongst other festivities on the interceding days, whilst Anzac Day and Labor Day generally play host to more formal ceremonies for remembrance and commemoration.

Some measure of the traditional holiday of May Day, the celebration of the beginning of summer, has been subsumed into Australic Labor Day, but as Australia is in the southern hemisphere (and thus the seasons are reversed) most summer celebration occurs on Stockade Day (December 3°, commemorating the Eureka Stockade) if not on Christmas or Boxing Day.
August 23° - Australia draws with Yucatan 1-1 in their DSAFF Rose Cup Debut. |May 25° - Australia is narrowly eliminated from the DSAFF Comrades' Cup, tying with Jerno on points - 1 win and 2 ties each -  but coming short on net goals. | May 7° - The Australics, the National Europic Football Team, departs for Talamia to compete in the inaugural DSAFF Comrades' Cup. | May 1° - The nation begins its week-long celebration of the 101° anniversary of the May Day Revolution.

For TurtleShroomers, July 4th is a national holiday- International Freedom Day -although it is not a guaranteed time off.

TS' actual equivalent to the USA's Independence Day is Founder's Day, which commemorates the creation of TurtleShroom on October 13th, 1796 AD.

We celebrate Crossoveria Day on July 31, when our first supreme leader/dictator came to power. But this is not a holiday of worship for the dictator. There’s feasting, parades, celebrations, traditional dancing and music galore. The Supreme Leader, President, and all other politicians are invited to celebrate, and the population is definitely invited, and the fun is shot on State TV for those unable to celebrate. At 8:30 exactly, the President makes an announcement, and then on 9:00 pm, the Supreme Leader makes a speech that brings about hope for the coming days of the nation. State TV usually closes down until 9:00, but on Crossoveria Day, it closes down at 12:00 am. Crossoveria Day overall is a fun day where the people not only can have the most fun, but to celebrate a glorious anniversary nationwide.

There are 2 important dates in Snowland that are widely celebrated.
First is July 21, the day of the founding of the Snowish Republic.
Second is May 8, or Victory in Europe day, for the collapse of the Axis in Europe during WWII.
- Snowland / the Snowish Republic -

Snowland, officially the Snowish Republic, is a country located in Northern Europe. Snowland runs on democratic socialism, which is an attempt to establish socialism by democratic means. <-- Is to change at some point so that I can legitimize the democratic system in Snowland.

There are multiple holidays in Aikoland that can be considered equivalent to the Fourth of July in the United States:
  • Constitution Day - Celebrated on 4 March, Constitution Day commemorates the enactment of the fourth and current constitution of Aikoland in 1902.
  • Union Day - Celebrated on 17 April, Union Day commemorates the incorporation of the then-independent (but under personal union) Kingdoms of Aiko, Boullién, and Saun into the Kingdom of Aikoland in 1719. This holiday is recognised as our national day.
  • Democracy Day - Celebrated on 16 August, Democracy Day commemorates the enactment of the first Aikolandais constitution and the introduction of democracy and constitutional monarchy to our nation in 1794.

Of those three holidays, however, both Union Day and Democracy Day have the largest celebrations (and they are also the ones where workers [excepting those in essential services] are guaranteed a day off with full pay [alongside a few other holidays not equivalent to the Fourth of July])

The 4th of July is our 4th of July, literally.

July 4th 1776 marks the ratification of the Declaration of Independence by the Continental Congress, thus formally ending our ties with the British crown.

We also have other national holidays like Constitution Day which is November 15th, which both commemorates the Articles of Confederation and the federal reforms of 1863 that saw the Union reaffirm its ties between the states, and there have been many amendments added on, and some regard the post reform articles as a completely new constitution.
