We gained independence today, but the declaration wasn't signed until July 4. Keep celebrating on the fourth?
Why change it now?....
Stick with the 4th. I have a birthday to celebrate on the 2nd. :)
Jesus wasn't born on December 25th, but we still celebrate Christmas on that day. So I say keep with our silly traditions.
The holiday is called the 4th of July. It would be weird to start celebrating a different day and calling it the 2nd of July.
We didn't gain independence today or the 4th. We gained it when Cornwallis surrendered at Yorktown.
Keep the tradition, and give Canada Day some breathing room.
