History and Celebration of July 4th
The United States Independence Day is annually celebrated on the fourth of July. A federal holiday in the US since 1941 but the history and tradition of the celebration goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution.
It was July 2nd, 1776 when the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence. Two days later, on July 4th, delegates of all thirteen colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence. Then, from 1776 until the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birthday of American independence. Celebrations for July 4th range from large festivities such as fireworks, parades, and concerts to casual get-togethers like barbecues with family, friends, and loved ones.
Fireworks, parades, concerts, and barbecues are all class 4th of July staples, but there are even more ways to celebrate this American holiday. First and foremost, score any deals you can! From snacks to kitchen appliances, there are tons of discounts and steals you can find.
Make red, white, and blue treats! From a cake decorated with a flag to a layered yogurt parfait. You could attend a baseball game, or a historical landmark or museum in order to learn more about our country’s history.
