declaration of independence on July 4,1776 by the continental congress declaring that the thirteen American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation, the United State of America. Therefore, this day is also called the birthday of the United State as from that date America freed from the British Empire. This day is celebrated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnic, concerts, baseball, games and family reunions. On this day, the president of the United States gives a political speech as it is celebrated as a National Day of the United States. This Day is annually celebrated on July 4 as the anniversary of the publication of independence from Great Britain. This is a victory of justice and the rights of human beings. Celebrating this independence day is a great deal of emphasis on the American tradition of political freedom. Different activities including watermelon, hotdog eating competitions and sporting events are held on this day. It is a tradition to the many people to show the American flag outside of their homes or buildings. Communities accompained fireworks with patriotic music. The first description of how independence Day would be celebrated was a letter from John Adam to his wife Abigail on July 3, 1776. He had described “pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, gus and illuminations” throughout the United States. However the term Independence day was used only after 1791. Thomas Jefferson and John Adams had signed the declaration of Independence. Prior to European settlers, Native Americans lived in the country and each of them had their own nation and government. The spirit of celebrating independence day is not only as the anniversary of United State official freedom, but it also constitutes the value that the country was founded upon. The declaration of independence was written with the theory that every person has inherent rights, called “ self-evident truths” in the official document.It reads: “ We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal: that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights: that among these are life, liberty and pursuit of happiness”.
