In this edition of #AskBritishHusbands, Chris and Ashley discuss their thoughts on American holidays that do not exist in the UK. In particular, they discuss their thoughts on Thanksgiving and 4th July – perhaps the two most famous (and well known) examples of American holidays.
4th July & Thanksgiving
While these two American holidays are not celebrated in the UK – both Chris and Ashley have experienced them to some extent during their relationships with Jude & I. It’s interesting to get an outside perspective on how these two important days in the American calendar are viewed by others.
In general, Chris and Ashley like the idea of each – the idea of additional holidays is always a nice one. However, it’s also interesting to see how these holidays compare to those celebrated in the UK, especially the similarities drawn between 4th July and Bonfire Night. While each is different, they are both viewed as the day with which fireworks are most often associated with in each country.
