Independence Day - July 4th

July 4th - Independence Day

Two hundred and thirty-two years ago America won its independence from Great Britain.

Even though this country had been settled by Europeans almost three hundred years earlier, July 4, 1776 is considered the birthday of the USA.

Americans celebrate this day with family reunions, barbecues, and fireworks at dusk.

This national holiday falls on a Friday this year which will make it a long weekend for many.

Many of the US holidays have been changed so that they make holiday weekends - it's good to know that this is one holiday that stays true to it's date.

Hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday weekend!
