Ok maybe not the rich, but people that have money to spend. These national holidays are supposed to be a big, fun celebration for everyone residing in the country, but things can get expensive if you want to have any patriotic fun.
Fireworks can be fun, depending on the location. Unfortunately, we couldn't afford to buy our own though- and the ones that are put on by the city are good, but so busy...
We also started (and finished) Lego Batman 2 for Xbox. Those Lego games rock! It all started with my Lego Pirates of the Carribbean game I got for my Wii many months ago when Brandon was married to his Xbox (so I had something to do too), and we got hooked. We finished Lego Pirates (twice- once on Wii, once on Xbox), tried Lego Star Wars (weren't fans) and now Lego Batman 2. Even though we completed all the levels there is still so much extra stuff to do. So now we're working on that. How is that for a long weekend of fun?!
What did you do for your Canada Day weekend? And for the American neighbours- with the holiday more fresh in your memories... or at least I hope so- what did you do to celebrate your country's birthday? Other country readers- how do you generally celebrate your country's national holiday?
