National Holidays


The Fourth of July, or Independence Day, is a federal holiday that celebrates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. The Declaration of Independence helped the 13 colonies to become a free and sovereign nation. This is why we celebrate the Fourth of July by wearing red, white, and blue. Many Americans show their gratitude for the Fourth of July by shooting off fireworks, wearing our nations colors, and watching parades.

Honoring our Veterans!

Thanksgiving Day is celebrated every fourth Thursday of the month in November. November 26th is the day that we celebrate Thanksgiving with our family and friends. Thanksgiving Day started when the pilgrims invited the Native Americans to share their feast with them. Thanksgiving Day did not become a tradition in the United States until 200 years later. In 1789, George Washington announced the 1st ever National Thanksgiving Holiday.
