Is National Day a Festival ?
In my English Test Book (Upstream LEVEL B1+ , P.113) , It is a passage that talks about festivals .
One of the para. said :
Independence Day is a big celebration in the United States , and it takes place on 4 July . Across the country , there are fireworks displays and people enjoy barbecues and picnics . Popular foods include hampurgers , hot dogs , sandwiches , potato salad , baked beans and corn on the cob .
(continue)Started by the large Carivvean populaion who live there , the popilation who live there , the Notting Hill Carnical has street festival which takes place in London , ...
After I search in the net , I found :
The National Day is a designated date on which celebrations mark the nationhood of a country. Often the National Day will be a national holiday.
The National Day is often taken as the date on which a state or territory achieved independence.
So I have a question: Is National Day is a FESTIVAL ?
