Game of Thrones is a TV show that has taken over the nation! Game of Thrones is an HBO show created by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss and is an adaptation of the A Song of Ice and Fire novels written by George R.R. Martin. The show first premiered on April 17, 2011 and its 7th seasonpremieres this Sunday, July 16th and will conclude with its eighth and final season the following year.
Game of Thrones is set in the fictitious Seven Kingdoms of Westeros and the continent of Essos. The series is all about the struggles between the noble families and their fight to rule the kingdom and sit on top of the Iron Throne.
George R.R. Martin began writing the series A Song of Ice and Fire in 1991 and had the first book published in 1996. Amazingly, over 20 years later and Martin has only published five of the even planned novels in the series. Fans of the book have been in an uproar because finally the TV series has surpassed the book and will potentially ruin secrets that have yet to be revealed in the book.

The 4th of July aka Independence Day is a federal holiday (an authorized holiday that has been recognized by the United States government) marking the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776.
The Declaration of Independence is the statement adopted by the Second Continental Congress which announced that the thirteen colonies considered themselves as independent sovereign states and that they were under British rule no more. The thirteen colonies decided to form new nation, the United States of America.
The 4th of July is marked by patriotic displays. Just like a lot of other summer events, Independence Day celebrations often take place outdoors and people often celebrate by hosting or attending a picnic or barbecue; many take advantage of the day off and, in some years, a long weekend to gather with relatives or friends. Decorations (e.g., streamers, balloons, and clothing) are colored red, white, and blue, the colors of the American flag. Parades are often held in the morning, before family gatherings and fireworks occur in the evening.
4th of July Fun Facts:
Only John Hancock signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. All the others signed at a later date.
The Declaration of Independence was signed by 56 men from 13 colonies.
The average age of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence was 45. The youngest was Thomas Lynch, Jr (27) of South Carolina. The oldest delegate was Benjamin Franklin (70) of Pennsylvania. The lead author of The Declaration, Thomas Jefferson, was 33.
The stars on the original American flag were in a circle so all the Colonies would appear equal.
Barbecue is also big on Independence Day. Approximately 150 million hot dogs and 700 million pounds of chicken are consumed on this day.

Memorial Day is an annual, authorized holiday that has been recognized by the US government as a day for remembering those who died while serving in the armed forces. On this day many people visit memorials and cemeteries and place flags on graves to show their respect.
This holiday was originally known as Decoration Day as was used to honor the Union and Confederate soldiers who lost their lives during the Civil War. It wasn’t until the 1900’s that is became a day that honored all the soldiers who dies while serving their country. There was another 60 years until it was changed from Decoration Day into Memorial Day in 1967 and then 4 more years until it became a federal holiday.
Memorial Day and Veterans Day are often confused because they both are for honoring military personnel. The difference is, Veterans Day honors any person that has been in the armed forces while Memorial Day is for remembering the people who died during their service. Memorial Day also marks the begging of summer season with most recreational pools opening on this weekend.
On this day all American Flags are raised to full-staff then slowly lowered to half-staff position, this position is specifically to honor all the fallen soldiers of our great country. The flag stays at half-staff until noon when it’s then raised all the way to the top for the rest of the day. If transitions to full-staff to commemorate the notion that the fallen soldiers memories will be raised by the living who will not allow their sacrifices to go in vain.
