Independence Day celebrations are underway in the United States. During the long weekend, concerts, parades, fireworks shows and competitions for eating as many hot dogs as possible will take place all over the country, and this – as TVN24 BiS journalist Michał Sznajder reported from Washington – is the “culinary key” of this year’s celebrations. The main celebration of the holiday is planned in Washington.

On July 4, Americans celebrate the anniversary of the United States Declaration of Independence. In 1776, delegates from the 13 American colonies on the East Coast – which became the first states USA – gathered in Philadelphia to proclaim the independence of the United States, that is, its independence from Great Britain.

Not ribs, not burgers, but hot dogs

Across the Ocean is the TVN24 BiS journalist Michał Sznajder. – To talk about this celebration, you have to ask about the key dish that will be the most popular in the United States today. It’s not ribs, it’s hot dogs, he pointed out.

– In preparing for this report, I discovered that in the United States there is such a thing as the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council (ed.). From the information contained there, we learn that, according to estimates, on July 4, Americans will eat about 150 million hot dogs – said Sznajder. – The culinary key today is a hot dog. This is how Independence Day is celebrated today.
