As a proud American, I am frustrated that our Independence Day is celebrated on a specific day, July 4th, no matter what day of the week it falls on. We celebrate many holidays in the United States on a Monday. Out of the 10 Federal holidays, six of them are observed on a Monday or Thursday (Thanksgiving). The only holidays that are observed on a specific date are New Years Day, the 4th of July, Veterans Day, and Christmas. I propose that we make Independence Day the first Monday of July. This allows a full weekend to celebrate and reduces the number of people calling in "sick" to work the day after. I am sure that there is a large number of patriotic Americans, individuals and families, that were not able to celebrate as they wished because of the need to go back to work the next day. We as Americans typically celebrate our Independence Day in the late afternoon and into the evening for fireworks. Changing the day of celebration from the 4th of July to the first Monday of July would be a great change and allow more Americans to celebrate our Independence. Please sign this petition and show your support for change.
