4th of July

This date commemorates the Independence Day for American people. Every where, people is greeting each other “happy 4th of July”. Surely, every one is upbeat and in a positive mood.

Such independence was gained from the Kingdom of Great Britain. Actually, the separation of American people from Great Britain was on July 2, 1776. However, most of the delegates signed the declaration on August 2, 1776.

Nonetheless, what should play as a primary importance is the deliverance from a foreign captivity. For what is a nation if it has no freedom?

To proceed, July 4 was not a holiday yet when it was declared and pronounced in 1776. It was only in 1941 when July 4 was declared a holiday.

Way back then, fireworks are not as we know today. Fireworks are candles lit in the windowsills. This represents loyalty and love for their country. Those houses whose windowsills had no lit candles mean that their loyalty was for the English nation.

Further, among the fifty states of the United States, four states have the Liberty counties. These are Florida, Texas, Georgia and Montana.

Happy 4th of July for all the Americans!
