Learning about Independence Day (July 4th)

I believe most of us look forward to watching fireworks on the 4th of July, but do we really remember what the importance of this day is all about?

On July 4, 1776 the Declaration of Independence was officially adopted and we became our own country from Great Britain. Very exciting! That is why July 4th is called “Independence Day.”
