Other Countries Celebrate 4th of July Too
There are countries that celebrate this holiday. Mainly – Denmark, Norway, England, Portugal and Sweden. Three of these are Scandinavian countries.
You are probably wondering why they celebrate America’s Independence day. It’s because of the high number of American immigrants in these countries. They want to attract more American tourists and make them feel more at home.

Yes, we all know that American people love the taste of weenies and sausages grilled on their backyards. But on July the 4th, they consume their hotdogs in a staggering rate. 155 million hotdogs are consumed annually.
That explains America’s alarming rate of obesity. (Oh ‘Murica)
They also spend a ton of money on chips, beer and watermelon. More or less 600 million dollars.
Only 2 People Signed on July the 4th
