But… what exactly is celebrated on the 4th of July?
July 4th is celebrated as Independence Day in the United States. This part of history begins in the year 1776 when America formally proclaimed its independence from the British Empire, ruled at that time by George III of the United Kingdom. Specifically, it was the colonists settled on the east coast of North America and organized in thirteen colonies who decided to stop being English due to the significant increase in taxes.
It is a sentiment so deeply rooted in the American people and it comes out in all its splendor on this day. The excitement of this very special 4th of July birthday is in the air, everyone decorating their homes with bouquets of flowers in the colors of the United States, flags everywhere, concerts, parades, succulent barbecues, music and most especially… the fireworks. Wherever you are, it will be difficult not to see or at least hear them. Virtually all cities and towns will culminate the party with fireworks.
