Holidays in July
The word holiday has differing connotations in different regions. It can exclusively be refer to the nationally, religiously or culturally observed day(s) of rest or celebration, or the events themselves. While the word july refer to the period of time where leave from one’s duties has been agreed.
The concept of holidays is also often originated in connection with religious observances. The intention of a holiday was typically to allow individuals to tend to religious duties associated with important dates on the calendar. In most modern societies, however, holidays serve as much of a recreational function as any other weekend days or activities.
July is a festive month. We celebrate the Fourth of July (also known as Independence Day) a US holiday in commemoration of July 4, 1776, the day on which the original 13 colonies of the United States declared independence from British rule. July 14 marks the fall of the Bastille in 1789, and the day known as Bastille Day is a national holiday of the French republic.
July 14 is International Nonbinary Person’s Day, which raises awareness about those who do not fit into the binary male/female division.
