I thought I had an encyclopedic knowledge of things people think are weird about Americans.
The red cups, the lockers in schools, the bathroom stalls with large gaps! There are approximately 9,828 BuzzFeed posts about "American things."
Buuuut, because we don't give up, I found another "weird thing," and this time I was like, "Ok, I guess I see your point."
It involves the 4th of July.
Technically or not-so-technically, we should be saying "Happy July 4th," not "Happy 4th of July."
It's one of the few times Americans use "European style" dating.
And one of the few dates we pronounce differently in comparison to how we write it.
I know this is a really small thing...
...but many people around the world agree.
There's the whole "Independence Day" concept.
I mean, some people say "Happy Independence Day," but that's not really *so* much a thing. I feel like I see that written in store advertisements, but as a whole, we say "Happy 4th of July."
So there you have it. See y'all in the comments arguing about it!
