The Wonders of the 4th of July
As this Historic Americana weekend raps up, let’s look back as to why we celebrate July 4th! As many of us know July 4th has been designated a national holiday to commemorate the day the United States laid down its claim to be a free and independent nation!
John Adams wrote to Abigail Adams saying that this day should be celebrated with pomp and parade, games, sports and illuminations from one end of the continent to the other! The first display of fireworks was on July 4, 1777. The evening closed with the ringing of bells and a grand display of fireworks!
July 4th is such an amazing day! It’s one day that all Americans dress in Red, White and Blue and celebrate our Independence! Let’s never take for granted what our Freedom really means!
God Bless the USA!
