The 4th of July weekend is almost upon us and  I would like to wish everyone a happy and safe 4th of July. I found this article on History.com and I thought I share it with everyone, it’s interesting.  

Variously known as the Fourth of July and Independence Day, July 4th has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution (1775-83). In June 1776, representatives of the 13 colonies then fighting in the revolutionary struggle weighed a resolution that would declare their independence from Great Britain. On July 2nd, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later its delegates adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. From 1776 until the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with typical festivities ranging from fireworks, parades and concerts to more casual family gatherings & barbecues.                                   Have a safe and happy 4th of july… Sincererly  Mike Pellegrino  Founder/Owner of www.Sneables.com
