British national holiday

As we approach the U.S. national holiday on 4 July, here's a reminder of another national holiday.

The United Kingdom does not have a recognized national day, although the Queen's Official Birthday (which is declared annually, usually falling on a Saturday in the first half of June) is sometimes considered as such.

However, the four constituent nations of the UK (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) all have National Saints' days.
