The 4th of July, or ‘Independence Day’, celebrates America's independence from Britain – an event that took place on the 4th of July 1776. The day is an occasion for Americans to party together, usually around a barbecue. Around half of the population (44%) attends local fireworks displays, but an even more popular option is to create their own garden: 120 000 tons of fireworks are purchased each year! Americans are very patriotic: about 65% own an American flag in their home. For the occasion, they also decorate their houses in red, white and blue, and with the famous Star-Spangled Banner. Finally the traditional 4th of July food is the hot dog: around 150 million are consumed on this day – that's enough to make a line from the East to the West Coast five times!
