Also known as The Fourth of July
It is a day that we signed the Declaration of Independence to become our own Nation, thus giving it the name “Independence Day.” Happy birthday to America! It is our country’s 240th birthday!!!
How do you celebrate the fourth of July? Most people in America grill out and shoot fireworks, as a lot of the older traditions have faded out. This year my husband and I decided to grill out and invite our friends over, later we went to The American Village to watch fireworks. Then we decided to buy a few fireworks and invite one of John’s friends over to end our 4th of July!
