  独立日(Independence Day,又称Fourth of July、4th of July或July Fourth)是美国的主要法定节日之一,日期为每年7月4日,以纪念1776年7月4日大陆会议在费城正式通过《独立宣言》。《独立宣言》由托马斯·杰佛逊起草,1776年7月4日经大陆会议专门委员会修改后通过,并由大陆会议主席约翰·汉考克签字生效。《独立宣言》开宗明义地阐明,一切人生而平等,具有追求幸福与自由的天赋权利;淋漓尽致地历数了英国殖民主义者在美洲大陆犯下的罪行;最后庄严宣告美利坚合众国脱离英国而独立。《独立宣言》是具有世界历史意义的伟大文献。通过《独立宣言》的这一天也成为美国人民永远纪念的节日,定为美国独立日。

  这个被多数人简称为Fourth of July,也叫Independence Day的日子是美国人夏日里的重大节日。和多数其他国家不一样,美国的“国庆”纪念的不是政权的建立,而是一个充满希望的时刻──《独立宣言》的签署。

  7月4日美国国庆节英语介绍

  Happy Independence Day, Happy Birthday America, Happy 4th of July!!!

  Independence Day is the national holiday of the United States of America commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. On this day independence was claimed from Britain and Democracy was born. This day calls for parades, fireworks, wishes and celebrations.

  On June 7, 1776, Richard Henry Lee proposed a resolution to the Continental Congress stating that "these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States." Four days later Congress appointed a committee to draft a declaration embodying the intent of the resolution. The committee, consisting of Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman, and Robert R. Livingston, pressed on Jefferson the task of writing their report. On June 28 the committee submitted to Congress "A Declaration by the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress Assembled."

  The first official Fourth of July celebration, as affirmed by a legislative act, occurred in Massachusetts in 1781. By the mid 1800s, it became a United States custom to commemorate Independence Day in states and territories. Today, by parades, picnics and fireworks our country's fight for freedom is honoured.

  Parades, which usually begin mid-morning, are the first tradition followed each Fourth of July. The small-town parade, with baseball teams, baton twirlers and the high school marching band, is a common sight in cities across the country. After the parade, folks usually head home or to a relative's house for a family reunion or get-together. Fireworks are one of the oldest and most stunning ways to commemorate America's birthday. Frequently the nation's colors (red, white and blue)are used in these spectacular displays of patriotism. Most large cities in the United States have at least one, if not several, fireworks displays on the night of the Fourth. Fireworks are a remarkable and satisfying conclusion to the Fourth of July holiday.
