July 2015

We at Nature’s Pathways spend a lot of time pooling our local resources to provide information to help you prepare for a healthy future. Experts provide great recipes, fitness tips, ideas to keep your finances on track and much more. It’s exciting to think about how we can shape our lives in such a positive way by simply thinking about what we want our future to be.

When it comes to this month and the Fourth of July, we can’t help but look to the past and think about what those before us thought about their future and the future of our country.

Did you know?

The Fourth of July has been a federal holiday since 1941. Though that may seem like a long time for the country to wait to celebrate the independence it declared in 1776, the tradition of the Fourth of July, often referred to as Independence Day, dates back to the dawn of the American Revolution and the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.

Since then, July 4th has been recognized as the dawn of American independence, and celebrations that included fireworks and parades can be traced back to the 18th century. On July 4, 1777, the city of Philadelphia, which would become the first capital of the United States of America, held the first annual commemoration of American independence, and exactly one year later George Washington ordered that all of his soldiers be offered double rations of rum to commemorate the anniversary.

We hope you also enjoy and celebrate all July has to offer — while looking to both the past and the future!
