|Thank you, Internet.|
I can hear the collective "Huh?" already.
So, what is Great Britain, exactly?
Great Britain is the name of the large island that consists of the countries--yes, countries--of England, Wales, and Scotland.
Let me stress that England, Scotland, and Wales are different countries. I know. I was surprised, too.
The United Kingdom consists of the countries of Great Britain (England, Wales, and Scotland), plus the country of Northern Ireland (which shares the island of Ireland with the Republic of Ireland, which is not part of the UK, but is a part of Europe...they use the Euro for currency).
So when you refer to the "British", you're generally referring to someone from Great Britain. So someone who is English is British, but someone who is British might not be English--they might be Welsh or Scottish. Make sense?
And there you have it.
Come by tomorrow for H!
