U.S. Independence Day: 3 Safe and Meaningful Ways to Celebrate the 4th of July

Get to Know These Enlightening Facts about the Declaration of Our Nation’s Independence

The Fourth of July is easily one of the most popular federal holidays in the United States. As our nation celebrates with parades, fireworks, and cookouts, it might be helpful to learn about some important and interesting trivia that could make your celebration more meaningful.

Here are some enlightening facts about the declaration of our nation’s independence:

  • The Declaration of Independence was voted on days before it was published on July 4th, 1776.
  • Americans consume an average of 150 million hot dogs while enjoying July 4th
  • Only Continental Congress President John Hancock and Secretary Charles Thompson signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776. The historic document was eventually signed by all Congress members on August 2nd, 1776.
  • Contrary to the claims made in the Hollywood film “National Treasure,” there is no treasure map hidden on the back of the Declaration of Independence. What has been confirmed is that some words were written upside down on the back of the document. The words were “Original Declaration of Independence dated 4th July 1776.”
  • The tradition of lighting fireworks to celebrate Independence Day dates back to 1777, a year after Founding Father John Adams expressed his wishes to his wife that the day should be celebrated with parades and illuminations.
  • July 4th was only declared as a federal holiday in 1870, nearly 100 years after the nation was founded.

 

How You Can Safely Celebrate the 4th of July

Celebrating the 4th of July may be different these days compared to past celebrations. However, it can still be just as fun and meaningful at the same time. Here are a few ideas on how to keep the tradition going, safely.

1. Have a cookout only with your family.

Cookouts have become a 4th of July tradition, but in the face of pandemic protocols, you may want to enjoy a cookout only with your family in your backyard instead of holding a big gathering. You and your family can also enjoy other fun outdoor activities like having a picnic.

2. Learn more about the holiday.

Independence Day is not just a federal holiday and an extra day off from work. More importantly, it is a significant part of American history. Read up or watch a documentary about how events unfolded leading to the declaration of our nation’s independence to give you a finer appreciation of what our Founding Fathers accomplished.

3. Pay tributes to our veterans.

Pay tributes to the brave men and women of our armed forces who risked and sacrificed their lives to ensure the security and liberties that we enjoy.
