This Saturday sees the 244th anniversary of Independence Day, the day of declaration that the 13 American colonies were no longer under British rule, becoming united, free and independent states.

America may be in a place of upheaval at the moment, but on this national day, there will still be fireworks, parades, carnivals, balloons, baseball games and celebrations at public and private gatherings, all adorned with stars and stripes.

Apparently, some 155 million hot dogs will be consumed on this one day - not to mention all the burgers, ribs, corn on the cob, fried chicken and potato fries!
