5 Fun Facts about Independence Day
DATE: Independence Day isn’t always celebrated on the 4th of July. If 4th falls on a Saturday, it is observed on Friday the 3rd (like in 2020) and if it falls on a Monday, it is observed on the 5th of July (like in 2021).
HISTORY: The Continental Congress declared its freedom from Great Britain on July 2, 1776. Once the final wording was agreed, the Declaration of Independence was adopted on the 4th July. It was then signed by 56 men from 13 colonies.
POLITICS: John Adams and Thomas Jefferson both signed the Declaration of Independence and later on became presidents – Adams in 1797 and Jefferson in 1801. Coincidentally, both of them died on 4th July 1826, 50 years after the adoption of the declaration.
FUN: The oldest annual 4th of July celebrations were held in Bristol, Rhode Island in 1785. Today, celebrations include family picnics, parades and fireworks displays. Favourite activities include watermelon and hot dog eating competitions, sporting events like baseball games, three-legged race, swimming activities and tug-of-war games.
FOOD: When it comes to food, hot dogs are a popular choice for Independence Day – some 150 million hot dogs are consumed each year. In New England, however, it is customary to serve salmon with green peas. This tradition dates back to the 18th century, when people also used to have turtle soup.
From everyone here at The Prezenter, we would like to wish all of our American friends and clients a Happy Independence Day!
