99. 美国人民什么时候庆祝独立日?
7月4日


Explanation:
    Every year on July 4, millions of Americans commemorate (or remember and honor) the day when the United States adopted (or approved) the Declaration of Independence and created a new country that was independent and no longer part of Great Britain.
    每年的7月4日这一天,举国欢腾、成千上万的美国人聚在一起,共同纪念《独立宣言》的通过,正式宣告美利坚合众国脱离英国而独立。
    Independence Day is a national holiday, meaning that most people don’t have to work that day. Instead, they usually spend the day with family and friends. Since Independence Day falls in the summer (or happens in the summer) when the weather is very nice, the tradition (or something that is normally done the same way every year) is to have a barbeque outside, where people cook meat over a fire in a special machine called a grill. Probably the most traditional foods are hamburgers and hot dogs. People also eat a lot of chips and salads, and drink sodas and beer. There is usually watermelon, which is a large, round, green fruit that is red with black seeds inside, for dessert.
    独立日是一个全国性的节日,那天全国放假,几乎所有人都和家人朋友一同庆祝佳节。由于独立日正好是在夏天,阳光明媚,人们按照传统都会在户外烧烤,点上火,在架子上烤肉肉吃\(^o^)/~最传统的食物要属汉堡包和热狗了。人们也会吃一些薯条和沙拉,配上苏打水和啤酒。还有又大又圆外表翠绿内心火热的有子西瓜作为饭后甜点。
    Baseball games, parades (or events where many people celebrate by walking through the street slowly), and concerts are also popular on Independence Day. Many politicians (or people who have been chosen to work in government) give speeches that day, talking about the importance of U.S. history and patriotism (or feelings of being proud of one’s country).
    在独立日人们也喜欢举办棒球赛、游行和音乐会。许多政客会选择在那天公开演讲,主要是宣扬美国历史的重要性和爱国主义精神。
    At dusk, which is the time of day when the sun sets and it begins to get dark, people often go to parks to see fireworks. Fireworks are colorful explosions in the air that make a lot of noise and are pretty to look at. Most towns and cities have fireworks displays where they set off (or start) many fireworks in a short period of time. Some people go to sit on the roof of their home, where they can see many fireworks displays at the same time.
    日落的黄昏,人们就会纷纷聚到公园看烟火,随着爆破声响起,烟火把天空渲染得五彩纷呈,漂亮极了。大部分的城镇都会在特定时间上演烟火秀。有些人会坐在自家屋顶上同时观赏各地的烟火秀。
    Other people like to set off their own fireworks. In June and early July, many fireworks are sold to individuals and families. These fireworks are smaller and can be lit (or started with fire) in the street to make noise and colored lights. Some cities and states allow people to set off their own fireworks, but it is not legal in other cities and states.

    还有一些人喜欢自己放烟火。在6月、7月初会对个人和家庭出售小型烟火。人们可以在街道燃放,火光四射,热闹非凡。一些州和城市是允许个人燃放烟火的,然而另一些州和城市却是禁止的。
