… or is it, not that today’s the 4th but is the 4th really America’s birthday.
The Chicago Tribune has an article asking whether the 4th of July is really Independence Day. Apparently, John Adams thought the 2nd of July would be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival.
My 2 cents. The 4th is the 4th. But it’s one of those holidays that doesn’t lend itself to a 3 day weekend.
Thus my solution, I always take the week off and go to the beach.
