Happy July 4th, Independence Day, Fourth of July…However the f— you want to say it, I don’t care. All I know is that this wonderful, amazing, glorious day means beaches, fireworks, barbecues and turning up. Man, is this not the best holiday of the year?
Citizens in the good ‘ol U.S. of A. celebrate Independence Day on the Fourth of July every year. Ever since July 4, 1776, when the Declaration of Independence was signed, we’ve used this day to celebrate the official birth of this great nation as a true blue country. Hooray (f— the Articles of Confederation, too!)…Goodbye British Empire, hello boobs, beer and Burger King. We definitely got the better end of this deal.
Oddly, America isn’t the only country that celebrates the Fourth of July. You still might see fireworks in Denmark, England, Norway, Portugal and Sweden. Why? Europeans celebrate this American holiday to attract U.S. tourists. Yeah, we roll deep around the world. No big deal.
But how old is America turning this year?
The land of the free and home of the brave will be a distinguished 241 years old this year. While that sounds mighty impressive, Egypt has about 5,000 years on us as a country, so we still got a little bit to go despite our all around youthful awesomeness.
Anyway, it’s time to drink American beer, fire up the grill, cook some burgers and talk in a Southern accent even if you’re from the North. Also, enjoy this hilarious collections of memes we put together. No one does funny like us Yankees.
