Happy Holidays - It is Independence Day

July 04, 2016

Why is our US office closed? As we are now part of a larger international family, we thought it advisable to highlight why our offices are closed on certain holidays that are not observed across all of our territories.
In a concise recap from History.com: "July 4th has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution (1775-83). In June 1776, representatives of the 13 colonies then fighting in the revolutionary struggle weighed a resolution that would declare their independence from Great Britain. On July 2nd, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later its delegates adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. From 1776 until the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence."
The Specialist Works US offices are closed in celebration of Independence Day. We wish everyone a happy and safe celebration of the birth of the this nation.
