Thread Name: BS: Happy Holidays, Colonials!!
Subject: RE: BS: Happy Holidays, Colonials!!
Hi, LTS, thanks for the well wishing. As far as the colonial term, Montana was never a colony so it is not a term I personally could identify with. Most of the 50 states were not colonies. It's a big country. Many people think of themselves as citizens of their state as well as citizens of the country. As far as this "American" term others discussed, I've never known a Canadian or Mexican to Want to call themselves an American (that means US citizen).

The big event in our town, like many others, will be the huge fireworks display tonight.

Thanks again for the Happy greeting!

Alice in Montana
