That’s Simplified Chinese for: Happy Independence Day! But if you’re studying or living overseas, are there really places to celebrate the 4th of July?
For me, every 4th of July in China started off with the Grateful Dead song “U.S. Blues.” In the evening, a bunch of Americans and their friends from China and other countries around the world would get together to have a cookout and set off fireworks that we’d saved from Chinese New Year (which Chinese people traditionally celebrate with fireworks).
You can read about some ways that Americans abroad celebrate in this article from the International Business Times. And just for kicks, you can also enjoy this BBC guide to the 4th for Brits in the U.S.!
