Independence Day of USA is the National Day also known as July 4th or 4th of July, is a federal/national holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence from Great Britain drafted by Thomas Jefferson and birth of Democracy on July 4, 1776. This day is marked by patriotic displays of the country population.

Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, and political speeches and ceremonies, in addition to various other public and private events to praise the nation’s heritage, laws, history, society and people celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States.

Parades are often in the morning, while fireworks displays occur in the evening at such places as parks, fairgrounds, or town squares. The very famous Macy’s fireworks display usually held over the East River in New York City. This event is been televised on NBC channel.

Independence Day fireworks are often accompanied by patriotic songs such as the national anthem “The Star-Spangled Banner“, “God Bless America”, “America the Beautiful”, “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee”, “This Land Is Your Land”, “Stars and Stripes For ever”, and, regionally, “Yankee Doodle” in north eastern states and “Dixie” in southern states.

A salute of one gun for each state in the United States, called a “salute to the union,” is fired on Independence Day at noon by any capable military base.
