独立纪念日 (Independence Day) :美国庆祝国家的生日:190674

今天是74日独立纪念日!美国各地的人民都会相互祝贺。西元1776年7月4日,第二届的大陆议会无异议通过独立宣言 (Declaration of Independence) 。虽然宪法才是赋予美国合法政府结构的来源,但是这份主张「人人平等」的独立宣言却同样受到美国人民的爱戴。在独立宣言通过的第一周年时,许多费城百姓自动自发举办了庆祝74日的活动。但是一直到了1812年战争之后,庆祝独立纪念日的活动才成为全国普遍性的活动。

It's Independence Day! Today, all across the United States, people are wishing each other a happy Fourth of July. On July 4, 1776, the Second Continental Congress unanimously adopted the Declaration of Independence. Though it is the Constitution that provides the legal and governmental framework for the United States, the Declaration, with its eloquent assertion "all Men are created equal," is equally beloved by the American people. On the Declaration's first anniversary, many citizens of Philadelphia had a spontaneous July 4th celebration. But it wasn't until after the War of 1812 that observing Independence Day became commonplace.
