I am really excited because tomorrow is the 4th of July and the 4th of July is my favorite holiday. Know why? Because it’s summer, there’s fireworks, barbecue, hanging out on the lake, and oh, did I forget to mention that we celebrate our FREEDOM and that we beat the British. As such, I will be posting a few infographics over the next few days about the 4th of July, or as this infographic appropriately calls it, America Day.
This infographic is full of great AMERICA facts like:
- The national estimated population of the United States is 313,627,495 – This is 125 times the original population of the U.S.
- More than 74 million Americans will BBQ on the 4th
- More than 68 million cases of beer are sold on America Day
- Approximately 155 million hot dogs will be eaten tomorrow
- 22 Tons of fireworks will be set off
- $600,000,000 will be spent on fireworks this year
Unfortunately this infographic sheds light on some other facts that are a little disappointing, like only 58% of Americans know that the U.S. declared it’s independence in 1776. Or 1 in 4 Americans don’t know that we declared independence from Great Britain - 20% of people are unsure what country it was and another 6% mentioned a different country.
