Facts About Independance Day:

Americans began observing the Fourth of July as early as 1777, when the first-ever major celebration in Philadelphia included a parade, a thirteen-shot cannon salute and fireworks, but Congress didn't make it official until 1870, when it was part of a bill passed to recognize major state holidays at a federal level -- like Independence Day, Christmas and New Year's Day.

American consumers will spend more than $600 million on fireworks this Fourth, according to H&R Block. And they’d do well to use them with caution: Health officials expect more than 1,400 hand injuries are caused by fireworks on Independence Day. Sparklers, which can reach up to 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit, are the number one cause of injury.

America isn’t the only country to gain its independence on the 4th of July. In the Philippines, the 4th of July actually marks independence from America. The United States was ceded the Philippines in 1898, as part of the treaty that ended the Spanish-American War. But on July 4th, 1946, shortly after World War II, the U.S. granted the Philippines its sovereignty.  (UPDATE: But as several commenters have noted, the Philippines stopped celebrating Independence Day on July 4th in 1962; per President Diosdado Macapagal, Independence Day was switched to June 12, the date the Philippines declared independence from Spain in 1898.) Rwanda also celebrates “Liberation Day” on the 4th to commemorate the end of the Rwandan genocide: On July 4th, 1994, the Rwandan Patriotic Front gained control of the capital city of Kigali, setting the stage for peace.
