This classic 1960’s animated film tells the story of a depressed Charlie Brown who tries to get in the Christmas spirit by directing the Christmas play. With the help of his friends, Charlie Brown brings back the true meaning of Christmas, despite the other kids' efforts of modernizing the play. The heartfelt film illuminates the true meaning of Christmas, without all of the “glitz and glam” of today’s modern world.

1. “A Christmas Story”

The story of young Ralphie, who wants nothing more than a Red Ryder B.B. gun from Santa Clause. The realistic tale of a 1980s family continues to capture the heart of modern families today, airing 24 hours on Christmas day on TBS and/or TNT. There is nothing quite like opening your presents from Santa and drinking hot chocolate with the Parker family's antics playing in the background.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice.

Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for.

This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
