Happy Independence Day 2016

Today, July 4, we celebrate the birth of the United States of America.   The United States was once a British colony.

On July 4, 1776 the Continental Congress formally adopted the Declaration of Independence.   This day is celebrated across the United States, with parades, picnics, festivals, and when it is dark enough, wonderful displays of fireworks light the sky.

It was 1888 the last time Hanukkah and Thanksgiving came at the same time.  According to the Denver Post the two holidays will not be celebrated at the same time for another 79,043 years.  Wow!!  Hanukkah began Wednesday evening at sunset and will be celebrated for eight evenings.  Just thought you might want to know.

On Thanksgiving and every day we want to take time to remember all we have to be thankful for.  Among our blessings we give thanks for living in the United States of America.  We are thankful for the freedom to pursue and achieve our dreams and ambitions.  We thank all those that protect our freedoms.

We are thankful for our family and friends.  We are thankful for our food, for our homes and for all the comforts we have.
