Here’s a big shout-out to all my American and Filipino-American friends & relatives …. HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!!
The Philippines has been observing July 4 as Fil-American Friendship Day for decades now. It even used to be the Independence Day of the country until former President Diosdado Macapagal moved it to June 12 – the date on which the Philippines declared independence from Spain in 1898.
Since July 4 falls on a Sunday this year, I expect really thick crowds, bigger fireworks, more lavish parades, and the most sumptuous of family barbecues happening all around the U.S. of A.
Once more, HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY, USA!!! 😉
