In Germany the National Day is October 3rd and the reunification is celebrated. I'll celebrate it by not going to school and having lunch at my grandparents'. But I think most people don't apply the second habit, but just are happy with the first habit (including not needing to work of course).

In the United States, our National Day is July 4th, Independence Day. This observes the day in 1776 that the United States declared that they were breaking away from British colonial rule. Thus, in addition to the parties, fireworks, and parades, we also get to poke fun gently at the British, who of course are now our allies. (They of course can chide us for being uncouth and never developing our own language... :D)

In England the patriotic day is St Geroge's day. It is often an excuse to go to the pub. It is controversial in the UK at the moment. Not everyone celebrates St George's Day. The government thought it was not inclusive of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland but they have a patriotic day too (Ireland have St Patrick's Day, another excuse for drinking alcohol!) to be honest many English people join in the celebration of Ireland's St Patrick's Day. The story of St George is fairly simple: St George was a saint ("St" is the abbreviation so St George = Saint George) who killed the last known dragon in England.
