Origins of Independence Day (4th of July) with a Pagan Surprise

What does Independence Day really celebrate? Why do we traditionally set off fireworks
in celebration of Independence Day? And does Independence Day in America have
Pagan Origins? Prepare to be shocked, as was I when I researched
this topic. Welcome to the Arcanum Luminarium. Americans celebrate the 4th of July as Independence
Day, which commemorates the day the Corporate United States of America was born, and officially
declared their independence from Great Britain. People celebrate this national holiday with
hot dogs, beer, barbecues, and magnificent fireworks that light up the night sky. This all came about when the initial battles
of the Revolutionary War broke out in April 1775. Very few colonists desired complete independence
from Great Britain, and those who did were considered radicals. By the middle of the following year, many
more colonists had come to favor Independence, due to the increasing hostility towards Britain
and the spread of revolutionary documents such as the bestselling pamphlet entitled
Common Sense by Thomas Paine in early 1776. During heated debate over this concept, Congress
appointed a five-man committee which included Thomas Jefferson of Virginia, John Adams of
Massachusetts, Roger Sherman of Connecticut, Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania, and Robert
R. Livingston of New York to draft a formal statement justifying the break from Great
Britain. On July 2nd, the Continental Congress voted
in favor of the resolution of Independence, and formally adopted the Declaration of Independence
on July 4th, 1776. Prior to the Revolution, colonists held annual
celebrations of the king’s birthday, which traditionally included the ringing of bells,
bonfires, & speeches. However, during the summer of 1776 some colonists
celebrated the birth of independence by holding mock funerals for King George the 3rd, as
a way of symbolizing the end of the monarchy’s hold on America and the triumph of Liberty. Immediately after the adoption of the declaration
of Independence, celebration began with concerts, bonfires, parades, and the firing of cannons
and muskets. Which is now why we light Fireworks, to light
up the sky just as the firing of those cannons and muskets did back then. The tradition of patriotic celebration became
even more widespread after the War of 1812, in which the United States again faced Great
Britain, and on June 28th, 1870 the US Congress made July 4th a federal holiday; and in 1941
the provision was extended to grant it as a paid holiday to all federal employees. Now I know what you’re thinking. Arcanum how is any of this shocking, or pagan
in origin? Well this is going require a little historical
calendar background. In 1751, Britain & America adopted the Gregorian
Calendar, the standard modern calendar we still use today. Prior to this adoption the Julian Calendar
was used which had fallen 11 days out of sync with the annual solar cycle. Parliament decreed that the new calendar would
go into effect September 2nd, 1752. And on what would be September 3rd would automatically
change to September 14th. In
European Countries, a Pagan festival known as Midsummer’s Eve, also known as St John’s
Eve which was celebrated by many on June 23rd of the Julian Calendar. The Celebration was very similar to how May
Day is celebrated today including dancing around May Poles. Check out this video for more information
on that. If we shift the Julian Calendar Midsummer’s
Eve date of June 23rd, 1776 to the Gregorian Calendar, exactly 11 days forward; the date
becomes… July 4th, 1776!!!! Are you shocked! I had to double check this information a few
different ways, and it is accurate. Perhaps the founding fathers wanted two nights
of fiery spectacle and festivity, layered right on top of each other. Is this a coincidence? Or were the Founding Fathers a secret order
of druids, dedicated to reviving the old religion in the New World. Was paganism a way to break free of the Church
of England, a pillar of the English state; just as constitutional democracy was a way
to break free from the crown of England? Was J.R.R. Tolkien trying to tell us something when he
made Gandalf the master of fireworks? We may never know for sure, however either
way I hope everyone has a fun & safe 4th of July holiday. And If you enjoyed this video be sure to click

    My understanding of the declaration of independence was only the Masonic elite here wanted to become part of the union (can't remember what they called it…i think union was a term that came later) and it was rejected by the nation for 2+ yrs until they'd finally stirred up enough of a revolution (like they were doing in several places around the world at that time) that it was signed. What are your thoughts about its inception?

    They admitted up until the 1920s, the human sacrifices made at the boho grove were real… according to Alex Jones, they're still real. *shrug

    Another enlightening vid 🍻 thanks!
