The Fourth of July! Independence Day! July Fourth! Whatever you call it, July 4th in the United States brings celebrations, parades, picnics, and fireworks across the country. When I was younger, my dad tried to convince me that the festivities were all in his honor since July 4th is his birthday. He was right that a birthday was being celebrated, but the birthday that America is celebrating is its own!
