Happy Australia Day!

Australian Flag,

Happy Australia Day to all of my friends in Australia! My friends Jenn & Jacqui from the Bower Birds Nest have explained Australia Day to me and they said it is the biggest day of celebration in their country and that it is a public holiday in all of their states and territories. They tell me that on Australia Day they come together and celebrate and reflect what's great about Australia and to be an Australian. They also told me that many immigrants become citizens on this date. And the best part is that there are many parties and fun from the Outback to the cities. It sounds a lot like our 4th of July celebrations here in the USA. So I hope all of my Australian friends, Jenn & Jacqui, Shannon, Coll, and Peta and any I may have missed here, have a wonderful day filled with lots of fun! As Charles Schultz, the creator of Peanuts said "Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It's already tomorrow in Australia" Love that quote!
