Thank you to service men and woman in the military both past and present for fighting for our freedoms. We hope everyone has a safe holiday!
While “Independence Day” is a very good name for a holiday celebrating the separation of one country from another; most Americans refer to this holiday by its date, as “The Fourth of July”-or, indeed, “The Glorious Fourth,” though the latter has fallen out of common usage.
Nevertheless, there are and always have been people who say “July Fourth” instead of “The Fourth of July”-just not as many of them. Google returns 11,000,000 hits on a search for “Fourth of July” and only 826,000 for “July Fourth.” But whatever order you choose to say it in, we hope you enjoy the national holiday.
