Happy Fourth of July!
Why do we have picnics, parties, parades and fireworks on the Fourth of July? Because it is America’s birthday! On July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was signed, which is why the Fourth of July is also known as Independence Day. On this day, America declared its freedom from Great Britain and our country was born. July Fourth is a national holiday, so get into the patriotic spirit and celebrate!
