4th July: A day for celebration!
The 4th of July is a time of celebration for our friends over in US. It marks the day that the Declaration of Independence was signed and is both a symbol of American liberty and a testament to the great work and philosophies of their forefathers. Whilst nowadays everyone celebrates in true American style with bbq’s, fireworks and parties in the summer sun, July 1776 saw a very different America gain independence.
