*Why Does The USA Celebrate The 4th Of July?*

Declaration of Independence                 HAPPY 4th OF JULY AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL…….

So I had an interesting question asked of me last night on Twitter, it was from a young man who we follow each other and I totally forgot he lives in another country. I had ended my tweet reply to him writing, “Happy 4th of July”………..
Then he reply’s back saying, “what is 4th of July? as I live in the Caribbean and do not know what this is???…….We shouldn’t ASSUME everyone lives in America!…..LOL ….So hear is WHY we in the USA Celebrate *THE 4th Of July*…….very simple…..It is when we took back control of our Country, and fought the British to earn our *FREEDOM & INDEPENDENCE* of America’s shores……We also Celebrate &  HONOR OUR SOILDERS from Generation to Generation for fighting for our Freedom’s we enjoy today!

  1. The U.S. is the first country on the planet to have a birthday. Didn’t know if you knew that? Since it established July 4, 1776 other countries have followed suit. Cinco de Mayo is Mexico’s. July 1 is Canada’s. I’m sure there are many others.

    These are wonderful traditions to follow and a great way to tell the founding stories every year so that they are not lost to succeeding generations.
