July 4th

I have been asked many times by Americans what the British do on July 4th.  I have not been able to come up with a good reply to that one.  However, perhaps the Brits could celebrate some independence days.  After all there was independence from the Romans; the marauding hoards of various Goths who chanced upon the shores during the next few hundred years; the Vikings (Danes); Saxons, and then unfortunately we gave up the fight when the Normans took over in 1066.  That was the last time.  But we could have a celebration every quarter at least.  I wonder how that would play!
