Happy Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day everyone!
Originally America's Independence Day was supposed to be celebrated on July 2nd as our legal separation from Great Britain occurred on July 2, 1776, when the Second Continental Congress voted to approve a resolution of independence.

However...

July 4th is the day that the Declaration of Independence was "adopted" by that Continental Congress  because Congress debated and revised the wording of the Declaration, finally approving it on July 4.

It is for this reason I believe we should begin a petition to demand July 2nd thru the 4th be enacted as our Federal holiday.... Yes 3 days off in a row!

Don't we really need that many day off for the star spangled drunken stupor we induce every year at this time? Not to mention the banner hangover that ensues! ; )

CHEERS EVERYONE!
