July 4th - Independence Day in USA.

The 4th of July is one of America's favorite
holidays as we celebrate our independence
and eat plenty of BBQ while we watch fireworks.
Groundhog's Day is celebrated in Canada and the United States on February 2nd. Tradition says that if a groundhog comes out of its burrow and does not see his shadow, because the day is cloudy, winter will soon end.
BUT, if a groundhog does see his shadow, because the weather is bright and clear, the sight of his own shadow will scare him into ducking back into his burrow. That means winter will continue for 6 more weeks.
Christmas is an annual celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. The holiday is normally celebrated on December 25.
