A Brief History of Patriotic Holidays from Candy Gift Ideas. Today, we are accustomed to a string of national patriotic holidays in the United States - most notably, the Fourth of July, but also including others like Memorial Day, Labor Day, Presidents Day, etc. Actually, there are no truly national mandatory holidays, but most are agreed on throughout the nation. The Fourth of July was the first such holiday, being recognized as Independence Day by the state of Massachusetts in 1781.

The first commemoration of July 4 occurred in the year following the signing of the Declaration of Independence. One of the most elaborate celebrations in 1777 occurred in Philadelphia, the location of Independence Hall and where it all began. This event would foreshadow future celebrations - cannons were fired, one round for each state in the union, bells were rung, and music, food, and drink were part of the patriotic celebration. There were even "armed ships and gallies" in the harbor to commemorate the event.

Today, we continue to enjoy picnics, fireworks, and other traditional events not only on the Fourth of July but on other patriotic holidays as well. And while candy gifts are less common on these days, starting a NEW tradition is a great idea in our opinion.
