Celebrate with star-spangled food and fun.
Did you know that America's Fourth of July is also celebrated in Denmark?
On July 4th, many Danes celebrate at Rebilt Fesival, honoring the alliane between their nation and ours.
Every July Fourth the LIberty Bell in Philadelphia is tapped.
The iconic bell cracked so badly when it rang on George Washington's birthday in 1846 that it's now softly tapped by hand to avoid further damage.
On this holiday, 19th-century revelers ate turtle.
Many establishments in the 1800s offered turtle soup on the Fourth. Another treat that was offered then but is more popular now? Ice cream.
