    It is the day our nation was born.

    Each respective state also have their own birthday.

    Just one more excuse for your government to take another paid day off.

    Well, states are just geographical boundaries, and boundaries change over time. So 13 states or 50 states, we're all the same now.

    And what else can you "claim" if you're from one of the 13 original colony states that would have some special status over other states? Because it's not like anybody who was alive in 1776 that was living in one of those states, is still around, and so does that mean nobody can celebrate since nobody is here that was there then?

    If it's about ancestors, that's just ridonculous, as I am not from one of those 13 colony states, as I am a 6th generation West Coaster. However, I am also a bona-fide member of the DAR, and have about 20 ancestors who fought in the Revolutionary War. But nobody in my family back to these ancestors in recent generations have lived in one of those 13 colony states for probably over 150 years. I imagine this is because they were too busy trecking West and helping add more states to those original 13 states. So does this make me not have the right to celebrate our Independence Day because my ancestors then moved out West?

    And not only that, there's a lot of Americans who celebrate our Independence day who had no ancestors even here in 1776. Many people came here in the early 1900s, and they have every right to celebrate America's Independence day as everybody else here. And not only am I more than happy to celebrate with people not here in 1776, especially considering none of us were here then either, I am more than happy to celebrate our Independence Day with anybody who wants to celebrate it, even people who aren't Americans--because if they think we're a great place and worth celebrating our Independence for, then they are obviously a friend and ally of the USA. And I don't know about you, but I like lots of friends at my parties.
