Fourth of July, which falls on Monday this year, marks the Independence Day of the United States. From fireworks and parades to picnics and concerts, there are quite a few things to put on your agenda as part of the Independence Day celebrations.

July 4th marks the anniversary of the day when the 13 American colonies claimed their independence from England, and later went on to form the United States. With the national holiday on Monday, Americans will get a nice long weekend for the July 4 celebrations.
