On this day, we remember and honor our Founding Fathers as well as all of those diligent individuals that fought for this great country's independence.

We celebrate this historic day each year with parades, cookouts, concerts, family gatherings and of course, fireworks.

The very first Fourth of July fireworks display was held on July 4, 1777 in Philadelphia, a year after the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

The show began and ended with a display of 13 rockets being launched on the commons.

The celebrations vary across the nation.

While the festivities generally follow the same theme,

different cities add their own unique twist to the holiday.

Did you know that The Fourth of July could have been the July 2?

Here's a little trivia on the Fourth of July.

Delegates of the Continental Congress approved the resolution in Philadelphia on July 2, 1776.

The nation’s second president, John Adams, promptly wrote his wife, Abigail,
“I believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival.”
“It ought to be celebrated by pomp and parade,” Adams continued, “with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other.”
On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress officially adopted the final version of the Declaration of Independence and that action got all the attention.
Adams was only two days off, and in his defense, whenever July 4 falls on a Monday, Americans generally do celebrate the entire weekend!

The Fourth of July is the biggest celebration of the summer all across the United States.

Have a great and safe weekend everyone!
