Patriotic coloring sheets can make your kids busy during the holiday. Just before Independence Day, most Americans must stock up on some fireworks, hot dogs, beer, and anything about the American flag and symbol.
Besides, you must not forget to stock snacks and patriotic coloring sheets for your kids. At least you will make them busy whilst you are barbecuing and partying in the backyard.
Every time your kids ask about the history behind this celebration but you forget your past history class, check the following facts about America’s Independence Day.
1. It happened on July 2
Actually, the Continental Congress voted July 2 1776 as the day of America’s Independence Day. But the Congress fully accepted the Declaration of Independence two days later.
But another historical fact states that the Declaration of Independence was fully signed by the entire members of the Congress on August 2, 1776. Although the declaration was dated on July 4 and it became official America’s Independence Day.
2. John Adams knew how to celebrate
After the Declaration of Independence, which was July 2, 1776, he wrote to his wife about celebrating with fireworks and parades. This became the first moment where every year in the modern days, Americans celebrate Independence Day with fireworks, even a month before the day and at all hours of the night.
3. The first celebration
The first full-fledged celebration was held a year later, which was in 1777. Those festivities were held in Rhode Island, Bristol, Pennsylvania, and Philadelphia. The similarities of festivities in each country were loads of food, fireworks, and booze.
The historical stories were always fun to follow. Due to a lack of complete information and documentation, there must be some different versions. For us, living in this modern-day, we must be thankful to everyone back in those years. We must continue to build a love for the Nation, such as by giving patriotic coloring pages.
