Happy (almost) 4th of July! Here are a few fun facts you may not know:
Americans Enjoy 150 Million Hot Dogs During the 4th.
Fireworks = An American Tradition Dating Back to 1777.
John Adams wrote a letter to his wife about how memorable Independence Day would be in American history. He was obviously right — in his letter, he said the day should be celebrated with parades, bonfires and fireworks.
The Liberty Bell rings 13 times every Independence Day to honor the 13 original states.
We eat burgers and hot dogs on the 4th of July these days, but John Adams and his wife celebrated with turtle soup. New Englanders enjoyed poached salmon with egg sauce, green peas and boiled potatoes for their 4th of July Meal in 1776.
Independence Day is a wonderful time to enjoy a long weekend chock-full of burgers and hot dogs on the grill, sunshine, music, boats, parades, fireworks, bonfires, friends, and family. But, we must also remember the important history – that on July 4, 1776, the thirteen colonies claimed their independence from England, an event which eventually led to the formation of the United States. LET FREEDOM RING!
