AKA America Independence day
When: 4th July.
Apparently the Americans spend around $4.7 million dollars on flags each year on flags, most of which are made in China!
Millions of Americans turn out to watch the bands, stilkwalkers, and flamboyant floats in the Independence Day parades that take place in most major US cities (the most flamboyant of which is usually in the capital of Washington). They wave their American flags at the cheerleaders dressed from head to toe in red, white and blue chanting their chants until they can do so no more. The flag waving is generally followed by an abundance of fireworks in the evening to complete the celebrations.
Independence day is a federal holiday commemorating the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, which declared independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain.
