Fourth of July

Fourth of July, do we still know why we celebrate this day? I’ve read much in the history books about the first Fourth of July celebrated ,1776. The war had just ended at the cost of many lives. The fresh taste of victory was in the air and for the first time since they set foot on Americas shores, they where truly free.

That was then, but what about now July 4, 2009? I have heard statements like cool man I love the holiday I get a three day week end. Or this one, hey man what are you doing for the fourth? Party at the house man BBQ and lots of beer.

That’s all cool. There is nothing wrong with the party. Its a groovy thing when friends can get together. Extra days off are cool as well. Although I have to work it at time and a half pay.
