How intriguing... I will be celebrating that day, but something different. It will be a year since we came to New Zealand.How is the snow going? I heard there had been a lack of it. How ironic when the UK and eastern side of US has been swamped!!
Personally I love watching the opening ceremonies - I am fascinated by all the different countries and cultures and how they present themselves.
