Happy 4th July 2018 to our American colleagues, clients and friends.
America's 242nd Independence Day is being celebrated today with family gatherings, BBQ’s with friends and later tonight, fireworks. In New York, Macy’s massive firework show, the biggest display in the country, will use 3,000 effects in a 25-minute extravaganza and be viewed live by an estimated 3 million people.
Independence Day commemorates the 13 colonies' decision to rebel against King George III and declare their independence in 1776. The day celebrates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence by the Second Continental Congress. For the first 15 or 20 years after the Declaration was written, people didn’t celebrate it much on any date. Celebrations of the Fourth of July became more common as the years went on and in 1870, almost a hundred years after the Declaration was written, Congress first declared July 4 to be a national holiday as part of a bill to officially recognize several holidays, including Christmas.
