It’s the glorious – and for most of us, hot – Fourth!
No matter what our personal beliefs or political leanings, Americans all join together as one today to celebrate our independence from Great Britain – just 236 years ago – and our pride in our nation.
That includes celebrities from TV and film, from all over the country – such as Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, seen here. She tweeted this morning, “Happy Birthday America! Thank you to all those that keep our country free! #4thofJuly”
Here are some other tweets from famous folk who interrupted their cookouts and beach trips long enough to wish happy birthday to their homeland.
