Happy 4th Of July to all. It’s funny that in most other countries one would wish each other Happy Independence Day while in America people wish each other as Happy 4th Of July. Having grown up in south Asia, independence day back there was more of a political festival. There would be lots of formal events happening around the country and most people do not really participate in it. It’s like another Sunday for common man.
In the US however, this day calls for a great deal of celebration. People get together, cook food (barbecue), have drinks, participate in parades, carnivals, block parties and at the end of the day watch fireworks. It really is a fun event here which kind of makes more sense than politicians giving meaningless speeches. It is something that people look forward to. I feel that coming together as one is more important than any other celebrations.
Hope all of you had a wonderful 4th Of July!!!
