Fourth of Juli : Independence day - Onafhankelijkheidsdag

 

Fourth of July: Independence Day, Onafhankelijkheidsdag

De 4e juli is Independence Day in de Verenigde Staten: Onafhankelijkheidsdag. 

De geschiedenis van de Fourth of July

De 4e juli is (naast kerstmis) de enige vrije dag die werkelijk massaal in Amerika gevierd wordt. Inmiddels gaat de geschiedenis van deze feestdag al ruim 225 jaar terug: naar 4 juli 1776.

Tegenwoordig is de Fourth of July een gezellige familiedag, goed voor barbecue, concerten in het park en vuurwerk als toetje. De meest voor de hand liggende vergelijking is met onze nationale feestdag op 21 juli. De Fourth of July heeft een hoog braderie-gevoel. Als u op deze dag in de VS bent, kijk dan in de lokale kranten wat er allemaal te doen is en geniet ervan.

On July 4, 1776, we claimed our independence from Britain and Democracy was born. Every day thousands leave their homeland to come to the "land of the free and the home of the brave" so they can begin their American Dream.

The United States is truly a diverse nation made up of dynamic people. Each year on July 4, Americans celebrate that freedom and independence with barbecues, picnics, and family gatherings. Through the Internet we are learning about and communicating with people of different nations, with different languages and different races throughout the world. Bringing the world closer with understanding and knowledge can only benefit all nations.

We invite all nations to celebrate with Americans online this Fourth of July.

Happy Birthday, America!

Guy De Bondt I visited Guy just a few day's ago and he really works a lot on his exercises, so that he will be able to go home soon. The hospital is everything but a nice place to hang out! He puts letters and pictures on the wall to make it look nice. I'm sure if someone from your department would send him a drawing from one of your kids or a letter with some support from over seas, he will be super happy with that. His adress is:
UZ Gent, K7;
to:Guy De Bondt
9000 Gent
Belgium.
Thanks, Tim.
