Well, we made it! Nobody thought this day would ever come yet, it has finally been and gone. Freedom Day brought the opening of nightclubs, bars, and entertainment venues across England. For many of us, Freedom Day was a long time coming and we rushed out that same night to make the most of our newfound freedom. On the other hand, others have been cautious when returning to clubs as it has seemed like an overwhelming prospect. However, now the time has passed and the mad rush to go out has died down it’s time to put on your dancing shoes and dance the night away.
