Lonely Birthday Video January Twelfth

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 Beatles?

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 formed Britain.

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!

If you can find a birthday greeting song from UK that is even better, please let me know at Lonely People Champion Facebook Page.

Happy Birthday to you. Here is the Twelfth video of the experiment:
