Dear Cooking Fans and Foodies,
We hope you are just as excited to celebrate 4th of July as we are. There’s just something great about getting together with family and friends over delicious food and “under” beautiful fireworks. Independence Day was not declared a federal holiday by Congress until 1941, over 160 years after the Declaration of Independence was signed. But don’t think that means we haven’t been celebrating! On July 4th, 1778 George Washington issued double rations of rum to his soldiers. In 1781, Massachusetts became the very first state to make Independence Day a state holiday. Bristol, Rhode Island has been celebrating 4th of July since 1785 and is now noted as the oldest continuous 4th of July celebration!
Americans are still celebrating their independence 240 years after the Declaration of Independence was signed. Nowadays, families and friends get together for picnics and cookouts. As you celebrate the amazing U.S of A, think back to how American got where it is today. We’d like to help get your Fourth of July preparations in motion.
