Why do we celebrate independence day?

Each year on July 4th, we celebrate Independence Day. But let’s be honest, this year is going to be very different thanks to Coronavirus. The occasion is usually celebrated by BBQs. parades, concerts, and more with close family and friends. To put it simply, we celebrate 4th July because our country is truly independent. I.e. it isn’t controlled by another country, it doesn’t need the support of anything else to exist, it follows its own rules and people have the freedom to be who they truly are.

Therefore, we celebrate Independence day because we are marking the date from when we truly started to rule ourselves. This is why it’s so important to uphold such a traditional and special holiday.
