When i was in school. We use to get excited about to wakeup early dress up neatly. Get ready for flag hosting and sing National anthem. But actually the excitement was about getting treats from school meeting friends on off day of school. It was about taking part in celebrations. My school was not so big to celebrate it grandly but we use to have fun. They give us local store sweets biscuits. Kids take part in singing dancing.
And all the streets shops and roads were use to play all coutrylove songs. Everybody try to wear something similar to national flag. It was funny too. Its nothing like that now . Kids are more modern now.
Then kids use to run in happinness on streets. The day itself use to b so delightfull and charming. A sense of activness will b there in body. It was good . No more words .
