Get your fireworks and grill ready as today is the 4th of July, Independence Day!
This is the 242nd Independence Day in the United States.
On July 4th, 1776, the Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia, PA. Today, most Americans honor the day with cookouts and fireworks.
The Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association (yes, it is a real group) reports July 4th is the biggest grilling day of the year.
Last year, Americans spent more than $7 Billion on hot dogs, burgers and the like, according to the National Retail Foundation.
However you choose to celebrate have a fun and safe holiday!
