14 August i.e. Independence Day holds a special place in the history of Pakistan. In fact, no matter in which country you live in, independence day is important for every patriotic citizen. This year on 14 August, Pakistan will celebrate its 72 years of independence. Whether you are a child or grown-up, we have amazing ideas and plans to make 14 August memorable.
Why Should We Celebrate 14 August?
The important thing about the independence of Pakistan is that it wasn’t handed over to us in a gold plate. Instead, our ancestors had to give up on their lives to gain independence. Every year we celebrate independence day to pay tribute to the memory of our soldiers and martyrs.
Moreover, it is important for us to make our new generation a true patriot. Well, the first step in filling their hearts with patriotism is to celebrate 14 August with enthusiasm. Brutalities against Muslims in India, especially in Kashmir truly show the value of an independent Muslim state.
Plan a Party
No matter whether it is your birthday, Eid, or Independence day, throwing a party is the best way to celebrate any occasion. Invite your friends, decorate your house with them and enjoy a good meal. If you do not want to fuss in your home, then you can go out with your family to have dinner or some park. Restaurants and parks are specifically decorated on 14 August.
Whether you are planning to go on any function or not, it is always nice to dress up for independence day. Some people go too far when it comes to theme dress up. If you do not want to look absurd, go with a simple dressing. Girls can wear their traditional white Shalwar kameez with an elegant green colored dupatta.
Wear simple shoes or traditional Khussa. It is a good idea to wear some green colored accessories. Same dress code applies for men. They can go with their traditional white Shalwar Kameez. Do not forget to wear your Pakistani-flag badge.
