Hey! This year’s Fourth of July is approaching next month, so I guess your community is organizing various events to celebrate it if you are living in the United States. For people who are not from the US, a quick history summary would be that the 13 colonies declared their independence from England on July 4, 1776, which led to the foundation of the United States. Americans commemorate this historic event every year on July 4th, often known as Independence Day.
Traditions to celebrate Independence Day
Celebrations such as fireworks and barbeques mark the holiday’s fourth-of-july origins. Many of America’s present Independence Day traditions may be traced back to the country’s earliest commemorations of its independence. People would assemble for bonfires, music, and parades to celebrate their new country. The reading of the Declaration of Independence was often followed by the sound of cannons and muskets being fired. There’s little doubt that the earliest Americans celebrated Independence Day loudly and proudly.
As time passed, these traditions evolved into the July 4th celebrations we know today.
