July Holidays

Jul 01, 2016

There's a lot to celebrate in the month of July. Both Canada and the United States celebrate their own independence this month so there are bound to be parades and parties galore! But what about other holidays waiting to be celebrated in July? Kidzworld has the info you need to get your party plans in order!

Canada Day: July 1st

Canada Day marks the day that the Canadian Government was officially created and became independent from England on July 1, 1867. Before that day, the Queen of England oversaw all Canadian affairs. A big celebration is always held in the Canadian capital of Ottawa and there are sure to be plenty of festivities like fireworks displays across the country.

Independence Day: July 4th

For Americans, the Fourth of July is a holiday marking the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. At that time, there were only 13 states that made up the United States of America and although a lot has changed since then, Americans still know how to get out there and celebrate their country's independence. There are parades, fireworks and barbecues in every back yard.

Bastille Day: July 14th

It's not just Canada and the United States that are celebrating their independence this month - France has some parties planned as well. On July 14, 1789, the citizens of France stormed the Bastille, a jail that the King and Queen of France used for anyone who disagreed with their policies. This day was also the beginning of the French Revolution, a war that lasted four years.

Flitch Day: July 19th

An old English custom from long ago eventually turned into a holiday called Flitch Day, which is celebrated on July 19. Every year on this day, since about the year 1104, any married couple who could prove they had been faithful and loving to one another for one year was awarded half a pig, known as a flitch of bacon. However, very few couples would actually "bring home the bacon!" There are still flitch trials today, but they are only held once every four years.

All or Nothing Day: July 26th

All or Nothing Day isn't an official holiday, but it's a fun one that can be observed on July 26. The motto for All or Nothing Day is to live like it's your last day on Earth. It's the day to get out there and buy that cool pair of shades, the day to reconcile with an old friend or a day to just appreciate all that you've got goin' in your life.
