I wonder, why do so many people insist on saying "Happy 4th of July" instead of "Happy Independence Day"? Is it because it is less syllables? Would we rather just celebrate "The Fourth" as an American Holiday...forgetting that, like many of our national holidays, this one is rooted in violence?
Also, why don't we have any holidays about WWI or WWII? I mean, we won those too! I'm all for "Happy Manhattan Project Day!"
