On our patriotic holidays such as 4th of July and Memorial Day, we can don our nation's colors in a variety of costumes and take the time to celebrate our freedoms. It is also the time to remember all of the men and women who fought, and continue to fight to insure our freedom continues. That makes us a very special and lucky country.

Fourth of July costumes are traditionally red, white and blue. Most typical of choices is an Uncle Sam costume, a statue of liberty outfit, or a Betsy Ross costume that features a colonial dress in the colors and pattern of the American flag. Other special costumes that commemorate the signing of the Declaration of Independence are Ben Franklin and George Washington costumes.
The History of the Fourth of July
The Fourth of July is one of the United States of America's oldest celebrations, going all the way back to the signing of the Declaration of Independence, which announced America's separation from England, becoming no longer subordinate to its increasingly erratic sovereign. England had been taxing, threatening, and controlling the colonies for years, and eventually it had been too much for the Founding Fathers, who took to the second continental congress and signed one of the most important documents in history. This event began America's life as a young country of its own. It led to a troublesome time, but from troublesome times come great things. In 1775 Britain came with ships and troops, and battled their former colonies until September of 1783 and the siege of Yorktown. Once the battles were won, and King George's troops sent packing, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and other famous historical figures settled down to leading a brand new country that would quickly become a world power.
Now, after the battles are won, we get to celebrate out
independence every year with a ton of summer fun, cookouts in the summer sun,
and incredible patriotic costumes that are perfect for all kinds of fun events,
like parades, firework displays, and plenty of other colorful events.
Wearing red, white, and blue is one of the easiest ways to
get your outfit ready for this fun event! While there are plenty of outfits
