Although we’ve only been celebrating the 4th of July as a federal holiday since 1870, American independence has been celebrated annually ever since the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4, 1776.

From then until now, not too much has changed about how we honor this day: Speeches and parades; summery picnics with family, friends and neighbors; the Star-Spangled Banner and American flag — even fireworks displays have been part of the tradition since Philadelphia hosted the first annual Independence Day celebration on the 4th of July in 1777.

Here we reminisce and share some old-fashioned ideas and recipes to give your July 4th holiday some truly retro style!
