Happy Birthday T&T.  We country goin through some real strife right now.  Ah hope dat we GROW UP and not always take tings so lackadasical and instead develop de rich and vast potential we have as a people.  Sometimes ah doesn't even want to read de papers wit de amount a crime bein reported but is a reality so I also hopin fuh a HEALIN of de country.

Goin to de WC could be a blessing for our country.  A rallying point fuh we to concentrate and focus on all de GOOD we have.  It could start right there on Saturday and build momentum.
Or it might be a temporary plaster to cover a serious wound. 

Eedah way....wishin T&T all de best in this our 43rd year of Independence.

As Sentinel does say...Luv U T&T!!!

How Independence comes "birthday" now?  This I would like to know.  Trinidad and Tobago was not "born" today, as we existed as a country for many, many years prior.

We did gain our Independence, however.  So Tongue, stop talking tata.  Wha birthday yuh talking bout?  I guess Columbus "discovered" Trinidad as well, right?

Happy Independence Day fellow Trinbagonians.

Happy Independence Day fellow Trinbagonians.

Well the islands existed from way back when and were inhabited by Amerindians......but the islands were not called Trinidad & Tobago. Those names were branded by the spaniards (Columbus) Trinidad (La Trinidad) is spanish for the holy Trinity (father, son & holy spirit) which was what Columbus was reminded of when he saw the trinity (three) hills.....his first sight of Trinidad from the sea.....

Tobago, I think is a degeneration of the word "tobacco" which was a cash crop upon re-discovery. (correct me if I'm wrong)....

so sure today is not the birthday of the islands as a physical landmass inhabited by Caribs & Arawaks.....

but it is the birthday of Trinidad & Tobago as an independent country (as we know it)

daz my lil history lesson fuh de day  :beermug:

Today is the birthday of Trinidad and Tobago AS AN INDEPENDENT COUNTRY, not the birthday of Trinidad and Tobago on the whole.  There is a difference.

To say happy birthday Trinidad and Tobago is to negate all the work that those who toiled PRIOR to 1962 did.  So before 1962, was Trinidad and Tobago dead?  Did it exist?  The Water Riots, The fight for independence, other such pivotal moments in our history count for nothing then?

Come fellas, use the proper terminology.

Happy Independence Day Trinidad and Tobago.

Point taken but when you celebrate your birthday, do you celebrate it on the day you actually came into the world or the day when you were a recognizable zygote in your mother's womb?

breds..u taking this way too serious. think of it as metaphor. not everything has to be addressed in a literal manner. wishing a happy 'birthday' to a nation is a common expression that is used by many a writer. It is a way of personalizing the country, and gives the greeting an informal feel, like greeting an old friend. nobody is negating anything or making light of the nation's history and to be honest, you are not saying anything we don't already know. I like the way you address our nation's history, and I personally would stick to Independence Day myself, but historical accuracy is not the point here. Given the context, people should feel free to express these things however they feel.
