Happy 4th of July
4th of July brings to my mind the fireworks in New York. I used to live in Battery Park City, which was by the Hudson river. Come 4th of July, there was a magnificent fireworks display near the statue of Liberty.
It was a day of celebration in the US as it marks the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. On that day many people would have parties, BBQs, and then enjoy the fireworks. As "aliens" in that country, we were no different and joined in the celebrations as well.
Tho' I now no longer live in the US, we still remember the celebrations associated with it :)
Happy 4th of July to all Americans reading this post.
