"Independence Day" vs "4th of July"?Submitted by AAAAANDRE on Tue, 07/03/2012 - 21:07
I was just sitting here thinking about this and thought I'd throw it up for discussion...
The holiday is "Independence Day" to celebrate our independence from Great Britain (and any other would be oppressors). It is just celebrated on the "Fourth of July".
Referring to it as "4th of July" kind of strips the meaning away, don't you think? Like Cinco de Mayo has just turned into celebrating some date on the calendar, nobody even remembers why they are celebrating.
Anyway, the way things are going, this just might be one of the last "Independence Days", in the future we may just be celebrating the "4th of July".
