Bring out the flags! It’s almost the Fourth of July! The annual holiday celebration is a time-honoured tradition in the United States when people gather to commemorate the founding of the country and watch the fireworks in the sky. For history nerds, there are some jokes regarding the signing of the Declaration of Independence and our founding fathers, and for those pyromaniacs who simply enjoy firecrackers, there are some puns for you too.
Some call the national holiday Independence Day, although most people refer to it as the Fourth of July. In the United States, the day commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain (now officially known as the United Kingdom.) What makes Independence Day so special is that it is celebrated by fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, and political speeches and ceremonies. On Independence Day, people gather to celebrate the traditions of the United States, and it is usually a pleasant time for children as well!
Nothing beats spending Independence Day with your buddies. A gathering with your friends is a terrific way to spend the day. Plus, if you have time, you might want to organise a picnic (or a backyard barbeque) with patriotic games. Till then, these Fourth of July jokes will make you puke out your liber-tea.
