Rename "Fourth of July" subcategory to make it less US-centric

Since not all Pixoto players are from the US, and even Americans sometimes travel abroad, I suggest re-naming the "Fourth of July" subcategory in "Public Holidays" as "National/Independence Day". This would provide a place for photos of national celebrations in countries other than the US.

we in the UK don't have national/independence days........we have what we call bank holidays but they aren't really for any special reason.

Sub-categories listed for Public Holidays are too US centric. I seem to remember an "Other" sub-category but it doesn't show up any more. I've read where people were told to put fireworks under Abstract -> Fire & Fireworks. That's a really odd category. It's almost more of a landscape or cityscape sub-category since that is almost always featured in the image. Just my 2 cents...

I don't think the public holiday category really works, a bit like the news and events doesn't.

Lots of it does not work on Pixoto categories.

Holidays essentially are celebrations. Here it will be nice to put festivals, joyous events.

News and events might be natural disasters, catastrophes, accidents, wars etc. and it will be nice if here is the space for unpleasant events.

Have you look lately to photos of US events? http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra...

I suggest to make "happy events" category separate from "unhappy events" category, no meter how will you name them. And in "unhappy events" you can even place subcategory cemeteries.

Public Holidays is something that I for example try to avoid, because it is to much US centric.

As July 4th approaches again, isn't it time to rename the Public Holidays sub-category to "Independence Day". We have Pixoto members around the globe. I imagine that every nation celebrates its independence with festivities. Why limit this to a US holiday when it is one that should recognize every nation's independence.

Instead of getting rid of 'Fourth of July', let's add a new subcategory 'World Celebrations'.
