Common Enchantments

By MaryElizaR

The 4th be with you!

In the USA we celebrate this....

Declaration of Independence..a Proclamation by the Second Continental Congress declaring the 13 American colonies politically independent from Great Britain, formally adopted July 4, 1776.

We have come a long way from 13 colonies to 50 states in 242 years.  The Revolutionary War was fought by Patriots..who are still here in the USA.  We display our flag, we have our symbolic flying free eagle, we celebrate the birth of our nation.

And we eat barbeque pork ribs on July 4!     We are Americans.  

I cooked some special food but I am staying in air conditioned house..maybe I will venture out after dark to see the fireworks.  Maybe.
