Celebrating the 4th of July

This Sunday is one of the most patriotic holidays in the USA – it’s the United States Independence Day, which is celebrated every year on the 4th of July and is always full of family, friends, fireworks and fun.

For our non-US users, here’s a quick bit of history (because it’s important to know the reason behind the festivities!). Independence Day celebrates the separation of the USA from Great Britain and the United States’ declaration of independence.

People celebrate the 4th of July in many different ways; from having small family gatherings and picnics with friends, to throwing huge parties and eating and drinking until dawn. Wherever you go and whatever you do, you’ll see the American colors of red, white and blue splashed across everything and everyone!
