Today is 4th of July, one of the most important days in the USA. On this date they celebrate the Declaration of Independence from the British Empire in 1776. The congress actually voted to declare independence on July 2nd.
Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, picnics, family reunions, political speeches and ceremonies. Americans enjoy the most on this day and their patriotism only makes this event even more interesting. Decorations with ballons and clothing in red, white and blue, the colors of the American flag show all the pride they have for the country.
Friends and family get together to enjoy the most beautiful fireworks in America and have a lot of fun eating barbecue with potato salad, hamburgers and hot dogs. Parades are often in the morning before family get-togethers and the fireworks display occur in the evenings after dark at parks, fairgrounds or town squares.
Happy 4th of July!
