Fourth of July
The Fourth of July, or Independence Day, is a very big celebration in the United States. It is
a federal holiday commemorating the Declaration of Independence from Great Britain, which
took place July 4th, 1776. On this day, nobody works. Because it takes place in the summer,
we spend the day outside having a barbeque or a picnic with friends and family. We eat grilled
hamburgers, hot dogs, & sausages with pasta, vegetables and fresh fruit. In the afternoon, most
cities have a parade, a carnival or a concert. Decorations and the clothes that people wear are
often red, white and blue - the colors of the American flag. On the night of July Fourth, every
city has a big, public firework show that lasts up to an hour long. The firework show is usually
accompanied by patriotic music, such as our National Anthem, the Star Spangled Banner.
People can also purchase fireworks to use on their own. Fireworks can be heard all through the
night as Americans celebrate. It is a fun day with friends and family that everyone looks forward
to! For most, it is the highlight of the summer.
