How to Celebrate Independence Day

Thursday, July 2, 2009

The United States Independence Day is a holiday to celebrate the separation from Great Britain and declaring independence from the country. Traditionally, many people celebrate this day with picnics, parades, and fireworks. Independence Day lands on July 4th.

Hang a United States flag from your house roof, car, or get a flag pin to put on your clothes. Get someone to draw the flag on your cheek with washable finger paint. Some citizens choose to wear clothes that have the U.S. flag design on them.
Show your support by watching a local 4th of July parade in your community or city. Be sure to wear sunscreen and bring water, depending on how long you'll be in the sun for. Get into the parade spirit by waving back at the participants or clapping while U.S. veterans pass by.

Enjoy a barbecue or picnic with family or friends. Get together around at least 1 pm or so to spend the afternoon together. Traditionally, 4th of July food consists of hamburgers, hot dogs, and watermelon. Please remember if you are using public usage, such as parks or beaches, to clean after yourselves. Pop fireworks or attend a fireworks show provided by the city at night. Most states have laws against fireworks for personal use depending on the type or size of it. Some states also have laws pertaining to the time range citizens are allowed to pop fireworks, for example, everyone needs to stop by midnight or 1 am.

If you want to read on the history, Wikipedia has articles on the Declaration of Independence and the Continental Congress.Independence or 4th of July is considered a federal holiday. This means federal employees are considered to get their normal pay rate, in addition to holiday pay. Private banks, all schools, and non-federal businesses and offices are closed for this day.
