We’re feeling super festive RN.

If you didn’t already know by now, the 4th of July is pretty important holiday over in America. Not only was it the day that the Declaration of Independence was signed, but it was also the day in which everyone took an important step away from the British Empire in order to join their colonies together to form… the United States of America! To celebrate, everyone had massive parties and celebrated the hell out of their Independence Day this week, and we’ve got all the pics right here.

From fireworks, pool parties and makeup tutorials, your favourite YouTubers went absolutely crazy for this year’s 4th of July celebrations and we couldn’t help but share some of our favourite moments from America’s favourite day. Let us know what you got up to the in the comments!
