Happy Independence Day! Before we get to the parties, food, crafts and fireworks lets take a second to remember why the 4th of July is so important.
Following the Revolutionary War, on July 2, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence for the 13 colonies of the United States. Two days later, on July 4, 1776, those 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence drafted by Thomas Jefferson. On this day we celebrate the birth of the independence of America.
