Happy Birthday USA

4th July 1776

It�s almost Independence Day again. No, not that one, where the aliens are taking over the world�

It�s the Fourth of July, Independence Day, and a national holiday for the United States. It�s the United States of America�s birthday. On this day, 230 years ago, the Americans gained independence from Britain, and gained democracy. It�s the biggest secular holiday in the US, and if you�re an American out there travelling, its got to mean that you�re thinking of home. If you�re travelling in the States, there�s sure to be a party and some mega-fireworks happening near you. Check out your local area for what�s on.

No parades, BBQ�s or marching bands in easy reach? No problems. Grab a bunch of your closest hostel buddies � American or not � and celebrate in style! Grab some beers, and organize your own picnic. Just choose the best shady spot in front of a picturesque site, ruins, lakes, or fountains, send the photos back home and see who�s jealous then!
