The Greatest Holiday of them all!  The day we celebrate, commemorate and remember the establishment of our new nation by the forming and signing of the Declaration of Independence approved by the Continental Congress, which set 13 colonies on the road to freedom.  Here are some Fun Facts about the 4th of July:

US Population in July, 1776:  2.5 million  (Today's population this July Fourth:  311.7 million)

31 - Places have “liberty” in their names. The most populous one as of April 1, 2010, is Liberty, Mo. (29,149) Iowa, with four, has more of these places than any other state: Libertyville, New Liberty, North Liberty and West Liberty.

35 - Places have “eagle” in their names. The most populous one is Eagle Pass, Texas (26,248).

2.5 Billion pounds of Watermelons are consumed on July 4th celebration. (750 million pounds of which were grown and harvested in Florida)

Sadly, most of the fireworks and flags used on the Fourth of July areimported from China, according to U.S. International Trade Commission. Nearly $204 million worth of fireworks was imported in 2013 and about $3.5 million was spent on U.S. flags made in China in 2014.  (SUPPORT AMERICAN BUSINESS!)
