I’ll preface this post with a very important question:
Q: Who says you have to celebrate Independence Day on July 4th?
And that’s pretty much how it is for Americans.
But really, July 2nd has some historical significance. In 1776, Continental Congress declared independence as the British fleet and army arrived at New York. So there you go, Independence just took a few days (and militia ambushes) to set in.
Thanks America for Burt’s Bees, Jeans, Google and importing Liam Neeson to make AWESOME action films.
