Marmie: Why Brits ♥ Royal Wedding

Many people moan about our royals, but you wait come Friday and you will see the utter outpouring of pride and love and that comaradery that this country shows upon such events…. like during the war years or the world cup…. buntings galore will start appearing tomorrow (I do know there are tackie souvenirs in the shops of maties tell me) and many hundreds of thousands of normal everyday people prepare for the street parties… special licenses have been obtains to have roads closed for such events…. I myself will be going to a street party up me fellow woodelfs road, which is a culdisac…. tables will be laid in the middle of the street with buntings and all the houses will come together for a huge party… its mainly for the kids, ok thats a lie LOL/Marmitetoasty. More here.

Question: Is anyone out there planning to have house party to watch the royal wedding?
