July Holidays

One of the most popular July Holidays is Independence Day, or the Fourth of July! It is a day of Parades, having Barbeque's with friends and family, dressing like a flag by wearing the patriotic colors of red, white, and blue, and either watching fireworks, or shooting them off yourselves.  This Popular Holiday is about gaining our independence from England, and we celebrate actually being Americans and what that means!

Independence Day - 4th of July
