150 Million Hot Dogs!

I’m American, and the Fourth of July is an important day in the history of my country. It is the day in 1776 when the 13 British colonies of America decided that they wanted independence from Britain. They went to war with Britain, and they finally won the war in 1783. Those 13 colonies became the first 13 states of the United States of America. Now the Fourth of July is a public holiday. There are celebrations all over the U.S. with fireworks displays and parades. Many families and friends get together for barbecues, and the favorite food is the hot dog. According to some hot dog companies, Americans eat 150 million hot dogs every year on July 4!   (119 words)
