Upon seeing the title of this post, you might be wondering ‘what’s with the odd number”?. Why have I not just made it 50 or 100 instead. Well, the number 76 is actually very significant in this event. The Declaration of Independence for United States of America was July 4, 1776 and became a national holiday since then. Okay, the voting of legal separation from The Great Britain did happen on July 2, 1776 but due to the revisions of the Declaration, it was then finalized on July 4 the very reason why Americans are celebrating their Independence Day every Fourth of July or 4th of July. Don’t forget, whether it’s 2 or 4, it will always be 1776! Haha
Fourth of July is one of the most patriotic independence day on earth, ever. We do have our own independence day here in the Philippines but honestly, America’s 4th of July comes with a big bang! The celebration is always big and amazing. The colors of the American flag ; blue, red and white are everywhere.

I am sure that the United States of America is already thankful for their freedom in so many things. To mention is the right to divorce when marriage won’t work anymore. That’s something we don’t have yet in our country and it’s going to be a long battle whether it’ll be pushed or not by our political leaders while the church community will always keep an eye on this issue. Anyway, I know that this 4th of July 2015, a big percentage of Americans will joyously celebrate. Just recently, the LGBT (that stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) triumphed when the Supreme court of the United States granted the marriage rights of the US citizens. It is believed that this freedom let’s them enjoy equal dignity under the eyes of the law. So trust me, that’s going to be a large additional of triumphant on America’s Independence Day 2015.
I will just be watching on TV how they will celebrate it. I hope to learn more of their party ideas and activities to add here in my collection. For now dear Americans, here’s to you…. Keep Calm and Decorate 😉 Happy Fourth of July and God bless America!
