Happy 4th of July!


The 4th of July is an extremely patriotic holiday where we celebrate the independence of our country, the United States of America. People celebrate with family and friend gatherings, barbecues, parties, games, food, fun, festivals, parades, musical events and fireworks. It is important not to forget the true meaning of the day.

To commemorate this day of celebration I will share some fun 4th of July Facts from the US Census Bureau regarding patriotic-sounding place names:

  • There are thirty-one places nationwide with "liberty" in their names. The most populous is Liberty, Missouri with 29,581 residents.  The state of Iowa boasts four such towns, which is more than any other state: Libertyville, New Liberty, North Liberty, and West Liberty.
  • Thirty-one places are named "eagle" after the majestic bird that serves as our national symbol. The most populous community is Eagle County, Colorado, with a population of 51,359, then Eagle Pass, Texas, with 26,401 residents.
  • Twelve places have "independence" in their name. The most populous of these is Independence, Missouri with 109,400 residents.
  • Nine places adopted the name "freedom," including Freedom, California, with 6,000 residents.
  • There are five places in the country that are named "America," the most populous being American Fork, Utah, population 25,596.
  • There is one place named "patriot" - Patriot, Indiana, with a population of 195.
  • And what could be more fitting than spending the Fourth of July in a place called "America"? There are five such places in the country, with the most populous being American Fork, Utah, population 27,06

Today, we celebrate and enjoy the freedom that comes with the event that made this day so special. Independence Day is a patriotic holiday for celebrating the positive aspects of the United States. Above all, people in the United States express and give thanks for the freedom and liberties fought by the first generation of many of today's Americans.

The United States is truly a diverse nation made up of dynamic people. Every day thousands leave their homeland to come to the “land of the free and the home of the brave” so they can begin their American Dream. We invite all nations to celebrate with Americans on this Fourth of July.


Happy Birthday, America!
