4th of July versus....

The United Church of Christ bulletin commentary this week concerns "The 4th of July" versus "Independence Day". The author reminds us that Thomas Jefferson and his buddies would probably want us to refer to Independence Day as just that Independence Day and not call it the Fourth of July because the "Fourth" is just a date. "Independence Day" reminds us of the purpose of the holiday. Enough said. From now on we celebrate "Indepence Day". It will take a while to change the habit of calling it the "4th of July", but it should be done.
