Americans all over the world and residents in the United States of America (USA) are celebrating the Independence Day of the superpower today, July 4 as they do every year with different activities, including fireworks, barbecues, family get-togethers and parades.

The Fourth of July is a federal holiday in the United States to commemorate the Declaration of US Independence from Britain, which was ratified by the Second Continental Congress on July 4, 1776.

 President Joe Biden and first lady, Jill Biden of the US, are expected back in Washington, D.C., from Camp David around 1:30 p.m. today before the Independence Day festivities begin around 5 p.m., according to reports quoting the White House.

“The Fourth of July is a sacred day in our country — it’s a time to celebrate the goodness of our nation, the only nation on Earth founded based on an idea: that all people are created equal,” Biden said in a tweet Monday. “Make no mistake, our best days still lie ahead.”

After giving a speech, Biden, the report further said, will then watch the fireworks display over the National Mall from the White House.

The US first family are expected to host a July 4 barbecue for military families before speech and fireworks.
