What Is Independence Day?

Going into this holiday weekend, I wondered... Do our kids even know what this holiday is all about? I know they think July 4th is about pool parties, parades and sparklers.  But did they even know the real name of the holiday or what it is we are supposed to be celebrating? What does is mean to them to be an American?  So, I asked some of the children I encountered this weekend. 

Out of the mouths of babes...  I hope you had a happy Independence Day!
