Since Canada Day was yesterday and Independence Day is coming up, I'm wondering . . . how should the anniversary of a country be celebrated? Like, Biblically.
We all say "Happy Canada Day!" "Happy Independence Day" and all that, but I mean none of this present generation was around when the county was being born. We didn't help to build up the country to how it is today.
So, what would be more meaningful ways and God-honouring ways to celebrate these holidays?

That’s a good question. The answer? I don’t know.

For holidays like Christmas, that’s different.

National holidays tend to be irrevelant to the Bible. In essence, there's no right or wrong when it comes to such traditions.

I'm not sure. Like Khriz, I don't think it really matters, though it would be nice if more people used these days to remind each other of the early days of the US/Canada/etc and how much we've changed as nations since then. And then try to find ways of improving as a nation based on that. Though it would take a looooot of people to accomplish the latter, lol.

Hmm, my dad pointed out that Passover was basically the celebration of the birth of the nation Israel. Celebrating their independence and redemption from Egypt.
And I guess there's also the Sabbath, a celebration of the world's creation.

Makes sense.
But the question of is it necessary . . . I think the celebration of a country is beneficial, if not necessary. Like you're saying, it helps to reflect on the times gone past, what the country's been through and goals for the future.
Kinda like a birthday.
Also it's nice to have a holiday that mostly everyone nearby celebrates -- it helps draw others together

And how does that apply to today?

Nowadays, people don't reflect on the past, rather they're more focused on celebrating for celebrating's sake.

Yeahh...For example, I really like Independence Day because it feels like people forget about who's Democrat and who's Republican and instead everyone comes together to celebrate as fellow Americans...It's a great feeling for sure!

I’m not sure whether to say “Happy 4th of July” or “I acknowledge that today’s the day America chooses to use to celebrate their country and I hope you guys have a meaningful holiday.”
:huh:

And by July 5, 12:00 AM, they're back to debating and fighting and name-calling, and whistle-blowing, and making up conspiracies, and so on...
