Happy 4th of July

Found on Huffpost.comHappy 4th of July you bunch of people!

For those of us outside the USA might not know why the 4th of July is such a significant day to Americans so I thought I would let you know why the 4th of July is such an important day.

In 1776 the USA claimed there Independence from Great Britain and on the 4th of July (some historians may argue otherwise) John Adams and Benjamin Franklin along with 54 others signed the Declaration of Independence which meant that America was an independent country and Independence Day is now celebrated every year with barbeques and fireworks.

So I hope like me the people who don’t live in America have all learnt something new about why the 4th of July is so special.
