Happy Fourth of July 2022
I know that we all learn in school, from our parents, grandparents, family and friends, the meaning of Fourth of July, but sometimes we all need a little reminder.
"The Fourth of July—also known as Independence Day or 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. On July 2nd, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. From 1776 to the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with festivities ranging from fireworks, parades and concerts to more casual family gatherings and barbecues. The Fourth of July 2022 is on Monday, July 4, 2022".
Have some fun, don't get too much sun, and show the rest of the world, how we celebrate the Fourth of July by getting our Wave(s) on!
