Lonely Birthday Video January Twelfth
is a video about a happy birthday song from the United Kingdom of
Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Who better to sing it than the
The song is quite a treat! As a birthday greeting to you
from the U.K., it is great.
First, we need to get clear about the
difference between England, Britain, Great Britain and UK. As I
understand it, England and Wales were united in 1536 and together
When Scotland was “added” in 1701, the kingdom
became Great Britain.
When Ireland was "added" in 1801, the kingdom
became the United Kingdom.
The Republic of Ireland became independent
in 1922 after the Irish War of Independence.
The kingdom is now
called the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
Britain has a history reaching back
many centuries. There is one village, Hay-on-Wye, in the UK that
declared in 1977 that it is independent of the UK. So, there is a
pocket of resistance even in a country as established as the UK.
While the UK is wishing you a happy birthday, the village of
Hay-on-Wye is still thinking about it.
The British system of measurement has
roots in the Roman system of measurement. They are still using a
canal dug by the Romans – the Fossdyke.
If you decide to drink champagne on
your birthday, be sure to thank Britain for introducing champagne to
the world. Britain is also the country that introduced postage stamps
to the world.
Which food is more popular in the UK
besides fish and chips? Why, chicken tikka masala of course!

song from UK that is even better, please let me know at Lonely People
