Fourth of July

Today, America is commemorating its Independence Day.

The day seemed eventless and I was talking with my American co-teacher when the idea came. He shared that this day is their Independence Day which is a National holiday. It was a topic of resemblance with my previous post about the Philippine Independence Day so I took my opportunity to ask him how most Americans spend the day.

He said that their "Independence Day" is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecue, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, political speeches and ceremonies.

It's been 235 years since they had it. It was the 4th of July 1776 when the Congress officially adopted the Declaration of Independence document and from that time on, they gather together every Fourth of July to show their respect and praise and patriotism to their country's pride, history, society and people.

Happy Fourth of July!!!
