| Right | July 4, 2020

Dear readers,

It’s that oh-so-American time of the year again where our US-based readers celebrate a holiday you can’t forget the date of, and the rest of our readers get to be confused for the day. Our editorial staff may be international, but we’re always happy to dust off these 23 stories from our archives to show how the Fourth of July can be confusing even to those who are supposed to celebrate it!
