Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the United States of America commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain.
Independence day is a national holiday marked by patriotic displays. Families use this day to gather together and have picnics or BBQ’s. Fireworks shows are held in many states and some say Summer doesn’t truly begin until the 4th of July.
I have always enjoyed celebrating Independence day, and as an adult especially for having the day off and possibly enjoying it at the pool or beach with friends and family. Today this 4th of July may be dreary as we’ve had nothing but rain for the past few days and our fireworks show will be postponed till tomorrow, July 5th, but rainyor not we will still take the time to enjoy the day for what it truly means, maybe make some indoor smores and cook up a few burgers, pop in a few good movies, or make it a family game day. The day will not be wasted and the festivities shall continue throughout the weekend.
Happy 4th of July, may it be special no matter what the weather may bring you.
