Time flies. America has now been independent for 240 years. In 2026, the huge 250th anniversary will take place.

It is the 4th of July holiday in the United States. This year's Independence Day marks the 240 year anniversary of America. Google's way to celebrate 4th of July is with a Google Doodle.

Today’s Doodle celebrates America’s 240th anniversary by depicting the flag’s stars participating in uniquely American pastimes including baseball, grilling, surfing, marching bands, and more. Apparently American pastimes include flying on balloons, watering flowers and mediating.

Interestingly most stars in the Google Doodle line-up for the BBQ. What does Google want to tell America here?

The fourth of July is only of significance to Americans and this Google Doodle can only be seen on Google.com from within the United States.

The Independence Day of the United States, also referred to as the Fourth of July or July Fourth in the U.S., is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, by the Continental Congress declaring that the thirteen American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation, the United States of America, and no longer part of the British Empire.

Happy 4th of July from the I4U News team!
