The origin of the festival dates back to 1776, when the North American country became independent from Great Britain.. On July 2, the Declaration of Independence was signed and it was on July 4 that the separation of the British colonies was officially announced.
In the document, the colonies indicated that they no longer wanted to be governed by Great Britain and established that, in the new nation that would be created, all people would be equal and would have the same rights.
Now, although independence took place in 1776, it was not until 1870 that Congress endorsed a law to make July 4 an official national holiday.
How will the celebration be?
The great celebrations had been paused due to the restrictions by COVID-19, but after two years, dozens of activities will return to delight all its citizens.
According to the National Retail Federation (NRF), About 84 percent of the population plans to celebrate Independence Day in 2022.
Most Americans will be hosting barbecues with friends and family or going to watch fireworks displays in their community. There are others who plan to vacation and some will attend parades.
This is also the date when the consumption of red meat and chicken increases. In addition, it is the holiday in which the most beer is consumed, according to data from the specialized platform WalletHub.
In addition, most establishments offer special promotions on this day together and usually offer them with free products.
Some museums and national parks also allow visitors to enter without paying a single dollar on Independence Day, as well as on other holidays.
On the other hand, it should be noted that by law, all Americans must rest on July 4, so that they have the opportunity to celebrate Independence. In the event that some work, they must receive an additional payment for working on a holiday.
