We want to wish all of our readers a Happy Fourth of July!

We also want to remind you of why we celebrate independence day and avoid you an embarrassing spot on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

The legal separation of the thirteen colonies from Great Britain occurred on July 2, 1776 when the resolution of independence was approved. We celebrate on July 4 because it took two days to write the Declaration of Independence and for congress to approve it.
