The Fourth of July in Britain

A British acquaintance has explained it. When discussing the nature of the holiday celebrated in the United States on the fourth day of July, he noted that in the United Kingdom that date is celebrated as a holiday as well. The difference is the name. In the UK, the Fourth of July is apparently called Thanksgiving.
