The United States is an independent country. And just like any other independent country, the United States has Independence Day. This Independence Day is celebrated annually on the 4th of July across the States. 4th of July 2021 will mark Independence Day for the United States this year too. The country has been observing its Independence Day every year since 1941, but these celebrations of the Independence Day dates back to the eighteenth century.
Every year, Independence Day is observed as a federal holiday. However, the 4th of July 2021 will fall on Saturday this year. Therefore, a federal holiday will be observed on the previous Friday. And if it falls on a Sunday, then a federal holiday is observed on the following Monday. This is done to make sure that government employees celebrate this day too. This is one of the most important days in our history and all Americans should be giving the chance to celebrate it.

Let’s talk about the history of 4th July 2021 independence day. On the 4th of July 1776, all delegations of the thirteen colonies adopted the declaration of Independence from Great Britain. Then on July 5, 1776, copies of the declaration of independence were distributed. The first public hearing took place on July 8, 1776. And the next year, on July 4th, 1777, the first Independence Day was celebrated in Philadelphia. The first celebrations were pretty much the same as they are now. From Philadelphia, this tradition spread out to all towns and cities of the United States.
