Hello everyone.

What with the football soon, I started thinking about national pride, and thought this could be an interesting topic to talk about with different nationalities. (sorry if its been done already!)

What is it about your country and its culture that you feel most proud of?

What about people from other countries?

The things that make me feel proud about Britain... *cue stirring Colliery Brass Band type music*...

[*] Its the cultural diversity. I love that have fish'n'chip shops, chinese supermarkets, Halal grocers, West Indian cafes, sari shops and more all on the same street.

[*]I LOVE the rolling countryside with dry stone walls, lambs, pretty cottages etc

[*]I love the quality of classic BBC Nature Programmes with David Attenborough (Can't wait for rest of the Planet Earth series)

[*]Cadbury's Chocolate!

[*]I love the weather...nah only kidding!

What makes me proud? I think "the alps" is no satisfying answer...
It's definitely NOT the sound of music. Winter sports, maybe. Or Mozart, at least this year.

There are a few things that make me proud of my country; Kiwi ingenuity; fantastic scenery, the diversity, from ski fields to safe swimming and surfing beaches,fishing, mountain climbing,bushs walks,great farming country, etc. Something for everyone, even the home of bungy jumping, if you want a thrill.
Fish'n'chips, meat pies, pavlova, Kiwi roast,

Hm, hard to say in the case of the Netherlands... I suppose there is some pride in our relatively enlightened treatment of gay people who want to spend their lives together, and maybe in our euthanasia laws, although the situation there is not quite as progressive as it should be.

So what would make the Netherlands progrssive exactly?

What makes me proud to be Australian is the fact that we treat our indigenous people so well. There's nothing like knowing that there is a downtrodden, miserable, dysfunctional, alcohol-soaked group of petrol sniffers who are on the brink of self destruction living in squalid conditions in one of the world's richest countries.

Yep, a fair go for everyone in this land of milk and honey.
