July 04, 1776 is when we "declared" that we separated from England. The
actual separation happened over a period of years, after that date.
I think when a husband and wife declare "we've got to have a baby". There
is a time of planning and preparation and, uh, "working on it". Eventually,
the baby is born.
I'm not sure why the USA celebrates the date when the married couple
declares that they are going to work on getting pregnant. Maybe because it's
an easy date to find on a document?
