Experiencing the 4th of July in The United States of America is a unique experience. You can notice the United States flags on the majority of buildings, and people dress up patriotically as much as they can on that day! The colors red, white and blue are seen everywhere, even on cakes and candies. Some people go to festivals and concerts, while others enjoy barbecues and picnics with their families and friends. Many young people celebrate and set off fireworks for several days, but the fireworks on the 4th of July are the biggest and the most beautiful of all. I’m really thankful to Fulbright for giving me the opportunity to experience American culture!
