It’s a national holiday we celebrate to recognize the birth of our nation. The signing of the Declaration of Independence, our declaring independence from England. It was a pretty big fucking deal.
SO QUIT CALLING IT THE FOURTH OF JULY.
It’s Independence Day.
I feel we take away just a little bit when we refer to it as The Fourth of July, July Fourth or the laziest designation; The Fourth.
While it’s nice to have a day off and barbecue and swim. That’s not what it’s all about.
