We should be proud of being Yorkshire. It's a celebration in its self.Yorkshire born and bred.I'm also for the invite of Black Sheep, not just to expats!Hope you all have a great day (and night)!Celebrate!! :-)

Of course town and country people see themselves as inhabitants of the same Yorkshire. None of the Yorkshire conurbations are so remote from the countryside that you cannot get out by train,, bus or car within half an hour. Indeed, most Yorkshire towns are still a collection of villages with the same neighbourliness as any more rural village.
Who says that Yorkshire as we know it was abolished in 1974? re-arranging administrative areas doesn't make a jot of difference to where you belong!
By the way, we share 1 August with Switzerland, when she commemorates the first declaration of freedom in 1291 of the three founding states, against the House of Hapsburg. We have a lot in common in that throughout history we have thought for ourselves, been creative and inventive and have a dry sense of humour
I believe in Independance for Yorkshire, the people here belong to a totally different culture to that of 'Britain'. Long live Yorkshire!

Only the other day I introduced a colleague here in the other 'NY' to the Yorkshire Dialect web site. He was amazed! There is a certain magical quality about the people and the countryside, which we Yorkshire folk will only ever understand! I’m visiting in October after 18 mnths. away – cant wait! And I agree with Dylan’s Black Sheep proposal! I support Yorkshire Day, every day! Tim
I live in Los Angeles but was born & raised in York; absolutely am proud to be from York & Yorkshire. I especially make sure that other people know how beautiful Yorkshire is. Hope you don't mind an ex-pat's comments.
Yorkshire Day is a must for us expats living in Texas. I miss Hutton Rudby, Northallerton and the countryside. Make it an international celebration and send a pint of Black Sheep to every expat Yorkshireman.
Very proud to be a Yorkshireman. Even prouder if the old boundaries were re-instated. I live in Guisborough and there's many locals around the East Cleveland area who want to return to North Yorkshire rule.
PROUD TO BE YORKSHIRE & I SUPPORT YORKSHIRE DAY WHEN YOU HAVE FAITH IN GOD AND LIVE IN GOD'S OWN COUNTY THER'S NOTHING MORE REWARDING
Born in Middlesbrough when still part of Yorkshire and been PROUD to call myself a Yorkshireman ever since.
