Hearing the pop of fireworks, smelling delicious food on the grill and feeling the heat of summer are all things we love about 4th of July. Celebrating July 4th is a big deal because on July 4 in 1776, thirteen colonies claimed their independence from England which eventually led to the formation of the United States as we know it. It’s the perfect time of year to come together and revel in our nation’s history.
But, it wouldn’t be a celebration without an iconic 4th of July song! Officially becoming our National Anthem in 1931, The Star Bangled Banner has been an American tradition ever since.
Take a peek at how we party on 4th of July (and every night) below. Sing it loud and proud!
