What will non-U.S. FriendFeeders celebrate on Friday?

Most of the Thursday activity on FriendFeed centers around one of two topics at the moment: the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India, and the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States.

Regarding the latter, reaction ranges from the American reaction of Lions, Cowboys, tryptophan, and stuffing (both turkeys and humans), to the foreign reaction of "oh, those silly Americans."

And, of course, Friday activity will be centered upon Black Friday, which I have previously discussed.

However, FriendFeed is a worldwide service, and I'm sure that some of the foreigners are getting tired of our self-centeredness and our colorful misspellings (whoops, colourful misspellings). So, for the benefit of the world community, I will highlight some of the non-American observances on Friday, November 28, 2008.

Albania, Mauritania, Palau, and Panama will all be celebrating some sort of independence day.

Burundi and Chad will be celebrating some sort of republic day.

So I salute the various countries who are celebrating independence or republics or something.
