The Fourth of July, officially known as Independence Day, is the US holiday commemorating the date back in 1776 when our Founding Fathers declared our independence from Britain and formed a new nation called the United States of America. Today we rejoice with parades, fireworks, barbecues and all sorts of public and private events organized to recall the history of our great country. Patriotic costumes play a large role in bringing extra excitement and enthusiasm to all July 4th celebrations.
4th of July Costumes
During these festivities, people often dress in red, white and blue regalia to show off their devotion to our country. Some show their spirit with hats and wigs, while others go all out and dress in complete patriotic outfits. When choosing a 4th of July costume, how better to show your dedication than dressing as that icon of American liberty, Uncle Sam. For a perfect pairing, ladies may choose one of the most recognizable symbols of America, the Statue of Liberty.
