July is a Popular Month for Independence Days



While doing research to write an article about my father's land of birth, came across an interesting … uuhhh … ??? ... “coincidence”? The month of July is a very popular month for independence days.

  • The Bahamas - July 10th
  • United States of America - July 4th
  • Argentina - July 9th
  • France - July 14th
  • Colombia - July 20th
Didn't do extensive research but there looks like a pattern here.  Must be something about a hot summer month.

- Who would willingly choose to do battle in the dead of winter?

- Spring time is a time for lovers? The birds and the bees, the flowers and the trees. Etc.

- Autumn is out of the question. You can't sneak up on the enemy because the dead leaves on the ground make too much noise when you step on 'em!!
 
- Fighting for your freedom in the month of July?  Makes perfect sense.


Cool thing about The Bahamas is they peacefully negotiated their independence from the British. Now that's a noteworthy historical note!  Wouldn't you agree?
