Britain Pondring Changing Holidays - Possible 'National' Day

Jump to last reply

Th following was garnered from a BBC e-mail of today:

Britain it seems is one of the few countries without a genuine National Day - a 4th of July or Bastille day like in States and France.

But perhaps this will soon chang by the scrapping the late May Bank Holiday in favor of an English National Holiday in April at St George's Day (England's patron saint I believe) and St David's day in March for a Welsh National Holiday.

Or for a British National Day in October called Trafalgar Daym where Brits can revel in its past military prowess and past military victories such as the 1805 Battle of Trafalgar.

Seems to this observor that creating two national holidays - one for the English and a different one for the Welsh vs a pan-British national day is a huge decision - and what about ("a-boot") Scotland - do they already have a national day and would it be scrapped for a British national day like Trafalgar Day?
