As June is slowly coming to an end, and July is almost here there is an important date we always celebrate. July 4th- Independence Day. Now, I know it's all about Independence and with celebrating the colonies, but what it means to me is family. I love being with my family on holidays, especially during the summer! Cook-outs and BBQs are all time best! You get to celebrate with the ones you love, and the ones who care about you.

You play with sparklers, and watch the big fireworks happen. They show off the colors Red, White, and of course Blue. It is a wonderful time of the year to have fun and talk with family members.

What The 4th of July is all about is the 13 colonies claimed their independence from England, which led the formation of the United States. What the 4th of July mean to me is celebrating the independence of getting your freedom back and getting the 13 original colonies which are now the first 13 states of the USA.

This day is about getting your freedom back and being around friends, family, and your boyfriend and girlfriend. I love getting to celebrate the day that we got your independent back, having the 4th of July isn't about all the food, fun, and fireworks. It's about the day that we became independent. This day is all being around your families but most of all its all about celebrating the formation of the United States.

The 4th of July is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence which happen to be on July 4,1776, and this is what this day is all day.
