Happy Birthday, America! We celebrate American Independence Day on the Fourth of July every year. It’s a day that represents the birth of the United States of America as an independent nation. There will be fireworks and hot dogs, parades and picnics. Flags will be flying and bands will be playing as was advised by John Adams in a famous letter to his wife Abigail. He wrote:
The second day of July 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.
While we don’t celebrate on the 2nd, (sorry, Mr. Adams) we couldn’t agree more.
