July 4th, the American Independence Day, generally known as the July Fourth or Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the United States. It is celebrated to commemorate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, that was signed to affirm America’s independence from Great Britain. From then on, this day has been celebrated as the birth of American independence.

Americans go all out to make the most of this National holiday by organizing patriotic displays, decorations like streamers, balloons, and clothing, in the colours of the American flag (red, white, and blue), parades, fireworks, fairs, barbecues, picnics, carnivals, family reunions, ceremonies and political speeches. The fireworks are commonly accompanied by patriotic songs like the national anthem, ‘God Bless America", ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ and ‘Stars and Stripes Forever’.

Over the years, July 4th has remained a symbol of patriotism and an important national holiday.

So, from us here at Moneydart – we’re wishing the USA a happy 239th year of Independence!
