Here in the United States, we celebrate July 4th as Independence Day. This is the day that we declared our independence from Great Britain and became a sovereign country.
It is usually spent on picnics, going swimming or just relaxing. The day always ends with a firework show for everyone to watch. We will see if fireworks will happen as it will either be burning hot or raining today.
DC has been kind enough to send over some great artwork for your enjoyment today. We have also added some lovely shots of Betty Boop who is an American Sex Icon from the days of olde.
