Learning to celebrate the Fourth outside of July

A recent remark made by a co-worker following a World Cup soccer game got me thinking.

He said, and I’m paraphrasing here, “I’m not really a fan of soccer, but I become nationalistic when America competes on a national level.”

Patriotism is defined as love for or devotion to one’s country. With the Fourth of July holiday looming, I wonder if we feel devotion to and love for our country all the time or just every four years with a World Cup or every two years with an Olympics or just one day every July.
