One thing’s for sure, America ages beautifully. She’s turning 238 years old today and you know what, she’s still got it!
Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July or even American’s birthday, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. Sidebar for a little history break- we then declared independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain (which is now officially known as the United Kingdom). Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks,parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, and political speeches and ceremonies, in addition to various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States. Independence Day is the National Day of the United States.
If you happen to be in DC today and “don’t have anything” to do. I have a few thoughts for you, head to the parade, the baseball game or even to the Capitol lawn for “A Capitol Fourth“, a free concert and then you will have the best view in town for the fireworks.
Did you know that the Washington, DC celebration of America’s Birthday attracts over half a million people annually?
God Bless America, land that I love. Today, American, I raise a glass to you. Here’s to you, America.
