How do you say 'Happy Birthday America'?

Real Americans in Paris is researching how American expats in France and around the world celebrate U.S. Independence Day -- or not. How do YOU say "Happy Birthday, America" when living in a land where it's just another Wednesday workday? Or do you simply go about your day with "business as usual" and ignore the date? RSVP in comments or to pollyvousfrancais [at ]yahoo dot com.

What's 'Real'?

One reader asked if we were trying to appear more "Real" than other Americans. Pas du tout! Mostly, Real American in Paris is a discovery of contemporary Americans in this city, as opposed to historic or literary figures featured in other anthologies.
