The Fourth of July is right around the corner. That means BBQs, fireworks, and SALES!


The Fourth Of July: known as America's Birthday, American Independence Day, or simply The Fourth. Whatever you want to call it, The Fourth of July is a pillar of American culture. 


The first fourth of July celebration was in 1776. Congress voted in favor of Independence from Great Britain on July 2nd, but The Declaration of Independence was not completed until July 4th. The declaration announced the separation of the thirteen North American colonies from Britain. 

The King's Birthday

In the streets of the colonies, people cheered. They participated in celebrations modeled after the celebrations traditionally held for the King's birthday. Parades, concerts, bonfires, and cannon, and musket firing were all part of the celebration following the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence.

Succeeding Fourth of July celebrations saw toasts, speeches, ringing of bells, and marching through the streets. The Fourth of July did not start out as a backyard BBQ day of fireworks. Many colonies even held mock funerals, followed by celebrations for the King to symbolize liberation from his rule. 


The Fourth of July instantly caught on amongst newly labeled Americans and quickly became a well-loved midsummer holiday.



The Opposition

But not everyone was so keen on Independence Day being celebrated on the fourth. John Adams thought the appropriate day for celebration was July 2nd, as he believed it was the true birthdate of American Independence.

John Adams even wrote, in a letter to his wife Abigail, that July 2 "will be celebrated by succeeding Generations, as the anniversary Festival" and that the celebration should include "Pomp and Parade...Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires, and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other."



When most people think of the Fourth of July, they think of fireworks. Fireworks are thought to have originated in China in 200 BC- And the tradition of setting off fireworks on the 4th of July began in Philadelphia on July 4, 1777. 


The Thirteen Gun Salute

During the first preplanned celebration of Independence day, there was a thirteen gun salute in honor of the thirteen colonies. The Pennsylvania Evening Post reported: "at night, there was a grand exhibition of fireworks (which began and concluded with thirteen rockets) on the commons, and the city was beautifully illuminated." That same night, the Sons of Liberty set off fireworks over Boston Common.


That Red, White & Blue.

Today, people celebrate the Fourth of July by watching fireworks and parades and having barbeques. Adults and kids alike dress up in red, white, and blue flag-inspired attire in order to honor America, the land of the free and the home of the brave. Americans also love celebrating the 4th of July with Sales!
