Independence Day, commonly known as the 4th of July, is a day of celebration in the United States. On July 4th, 1776, the USA adopted the Declaration of Independence, establishing the country as an independent nation from Great Britain and giving all men and women the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Americans usually celebrate the federal holiday with fireworks, gatherings, barbecues, picnics, parades, and festivals.


We hope you had a happy 4th!
