Celebrate Independence Day 2023

June 30, 2023

Independence Day in the United States is always observed on the 4th of July. This year Independence Day falls on a Tuesday, providing an opportunity for everyone to celebrate. As a federal holiday, nearly all banks, state and federal offices will be closed on Tuesday, July 4. Additionally, many private sector businesses will also be observing the holiday.

Independence Day | It's History and Importance

The 4th of July holds a significant place in American history. On July 4, 1776, the Second Continental Congress made the momentous decision to adopt the Declaration of Independence. This pivotal document marked the country's separation from British rule and established the foundation for the nation's freedom and independence. The signing of the Declaration on August 2, 1776, by 56 delegates further solidified this historic event.

Independence Day officially became a federal holiday in 1870, providing Americans with a special occasion to come together and celebrate the values of liberty, unity, and patriotism. It is a time when families and friends gather to enjoy picnics, parades, and magnificent firework displays.

Note:  Our Canadian friends celebrate their independence on July 1st, Canada Day.

This day serves as a reminder of the courage of the 56 delegates who committed high treason against the British Government to establish the freedom and independence we enjoy today.
