The Founding Fathers Agree!

Let's go celebrate!
John Adams said so!

"The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America," Adams wrote on July 3, 1776. "It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more."

Of course we're a couple days late every year :) the second was the day they voted to declare independence. The fourth is when John Hancock signed the declaration. 

This makes me smile. I love a party and apparently the founding fathers did to!
Happy 4th of July!

As long as we get to celebrate our freedom, I don't care which day it is.
