One of my very best friends' birthday. Happy Birthday, Debbie! Happy Birthday, America! July 2011 is a busy month for me. I'm incorporating a new company in the coming days. So, should it be on Canada Day, Fourth of July or ? My dad's and another good friend's birthday is also in July!

So, anyone knows when is Lunch's birthday?!?!?!

Fourth of July! Picnics, barbecues, parades, family reunions. This year, probably a good dose of Tea Parties too. Two hundred and thirty three years since  the United States became independent, a great reason to celebrate! Is that really why we get together though? Or is it just another holiday?      There is this interesting characteristic that humans have, give them a reason to party  - they'll jump right on it. Everyone plans events and activities for any holiday …

About this government


A federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, picnics, concerts, baseball games, political speeches and ceremonies, and various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States. 

One of the most enduring myths about Independence Day is that Congress signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. The myth had become so firmly established that, decades after the event and nearing the end of their lives, even the elderly Thomas Jefferson and John Adams had come to believe that they and the other delegates had signed the Declaration on the fourth. Most delegates actually signed the Declaration on August 2, 1776. In a remarkable series of coincidences, both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, two founding fathers of the United States and the only two men who signed the Declaration of Independence to become president, died on the same day: July 4, 1826, which was the United States' 50th anniversary. President James Monroe died exactly five years later, on July 4, 1831, but he was not a signatory to the Declaration of Independence.
