We celebrate the 4th of July, because America passed the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776. That's why we have the 4th of July.
What do you like about the holiday?
Well, I like the holiday because 1. it's the day the constution was made 2. they have fireworks, parades, and singing (Sometimes with the singing), and 3. (Where I live) they have a party for kids ages 10 - 17, so I fall right into that category at 12. :D
Boom! Crackle! Pop!
I'm marching with the rest of this 6th grade band in my hometown's parade on the 4th. I've already memorized the @#$%ing song we're playing, and I have to march in my band uniforn, which consits of my school's band t-shirt and khaki pants.
I hate khaki pants DX
Love a good barbeque and good fireworks.
My mother (only family) is gonna be away to another city for a business conference, so my USA's Birthday this year will just be me outside watching everyone else have fun...
@Shibibiru Actually, it's the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution. :)
I'm not sure what we will do for July 4 this year. When I lived with my parents we never really did much except go see fireworks sometimes or go to pool parties. This is my first year celebrating July 4 with my future mother-in-law and the rest of my boyfriend's/fiancé's family.
go to another county's fair with my family cause SF does not have a fair
