Americans will celebrate the 242nd anniversary of the signing on the Declaration of Independence on Wednesday 4 July 2018.

That means a day off work in the United States with picnics, trips to the beach, parades down Main Street, and lavish fireworks displays after dark.

When it comes to food, perennial favourites include BBQ, fried chicken, hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad, corn on the cob – the list goes on.

Officially known as Independence Day, July Fourth is one of the most important holidays of the year in the United States.

With the large number of U.S. nationals living in the Philippines, many people there celebrate July Fourth pretty much the way it is celebrated in the U.S., with picnics and barbecues.
