Independence Day in the U.S.: Let’s Celebrate!

July 3, 2021

This weekend, it’s time to watch overhead for the rockets’ red glare as fireworks illuminate the sky in honor of Independence Day in the U.S.!

On July 4, 1776, Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence, giving momentum to the American Revolution. It was almost a century later, in 1870, that the United States Congress officially made Independence Day a federal holiday.

Tomorrow we celebrate freedom and all the promise of that initial declaration. Strike up the bands, light up the barbecue, and enjoy a bright and safe Independence Day!

Happy Fourth of July!
