Fourth of July has been celebrated on all continents, notes James R. Heintze, author of 'The Fourth of July Encyclopedia'. Despite being the American Independence Day, it is surprisingly popular worldwide. 123Greetings’ analysis shows that people from different countries across six continents sent greetings and wishes on this holiday last year. Countries as distant as South Africa, Australia, India, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Japan and even Vietnam sent wishes for this holiday in 2012. This goes to show how connected the U.S economy is internationally, and how impactful this day is for people.
Fourth of July celebrations are as diverse as its audiences. In the past, the day was traditionally celebrated with firing of guns, parades, ceremonies and patriotic speeches but now celebrations include additional activities such as fireworks, barbecues, carnivals, baseball games, concerts and family reunions. Other private events celebrating the history, government and customs of the United States are organized as well. These multiple activities suggest that different emotions of pride, patriotism, fun and unity bind this day.
