Happy Independence Day!!!
What does the 4th of July mean to you?
Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the United States 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, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, and political speeches and ceremonies, in addition to various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States. Independence Day is the National Day of the United States.
Remember the reason we are able to celebrate with our family and friends. As usual there was a war and fighting involved. So as we have fun and enjoy a paid day off let's offer a moment of silence to those who made this possible.
This flag is made from a scrap piece of metal roofing painted by my love as a token to our American Flag.
