  • ① Facebook Facebook is an extremely popular social media program in the USA as well as other parts of the world. This program allows people to regularly stay in touch and communicate with friends, family, and acquaintances on their computers or smart phones. It has enabled many people to reconnect with old friends. Facebook makes it very easy to post photos, stories and comments online, read the posts of others, and even send private messages back and forth. The invention of Facebook by founder Mark Zuckerberg, has made him one of the richest people in the world. Unfortunately, because of Facebook’s popularity and use by everyone, many groups and individuals now post fake news stories in an effort to influence people’s opinions and political perspectives. It has become so bad that one must now view as suspect all of the stories that are posted. This has really ruined the enjoyment of using Facebook for many people.

  • ② Independence Day Independence Day, also referred to as the 4th of July or July 4th, is one of the United States’ most important national holidays. It commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776. On that date, America’s thirteen colonies declared themselves a new nation, independent of the British Empire. Celebration of the holiday often involves fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, baseball games, family reunions as well as political ceremonies celebrating the founding of the nation. Two of the largest fireworks celebrations take place in New York City and at the United States Capital in Washington, D.C. The fireworks displays are accompanied by patriotic music and are televised for everyone across the nation to see.

  • ➂ American Football One of my favorite times of the year is the fall because that is when the new season begins for American Football. When most people around the world hear the word football, they immediately think of the game of soccer. However, in the USA, the word football refers to a game played with an oblong ball that is showcased in the National Football League. Football season is sixteen weeks long and ends with a series of playoff games between the teams with the best winning records, eventually resulting with two final top teams competing against each other in what is called the Super Bowl. This final game of the season takes place on a Sunday at the beginning of February and is so popular that people plan huge Super Bowl parties where friends and family gather together to watch the game, to barbecue, to eat great food, and to drink. Super Bowl Sunday has almost become like an unofficial national holiday.
