Not the 4th of July
Why do we call Independence Day “the 4th of July”?
We don’t call Christmas “the 25th of December”. We don’t call Mother’s Day “the 2nd Sunday in May”. We don’t call Valentine’s Day “the 14th of February”.
Calling Independence day “the 4th of July” detracts from the meaning of the holiday. We should call it for what it rightly is—the day that we celebrate our nation’s independence.
So please, stop saying “the 4th of July”!
