Ten random things: July 4

Ten Independence Days:

  1. March 26 (Bangladesh, from Pakistan)
  2. 5 Iyar (Israel)
  3. November 22 (Lebanon, from France)
  4. August 9 (Singapore, from Malaysia)
  5. September 9 (Tajikistan, from the Soviet Union)
  6. October 8 (Croatia, from Yugoslavia)
  7. March 25 (Greece, from the Ottoman Empire)
  8. July 28 (Peru, from Spain)
  9. February 4 (Serbia and Montenegro; Sri Lanka, from the United Kingdom)
  10. July 1 (Burundi, from Belgium; Canada, from the United Kingdom; Rwanda, from Belgium)

If 5 Iyar falls on the Sabbath, the official observance of Yom Ha'atzma'ut takes place on 3 Iyar. On the Gregorian calendar, Israeli independence was declared on May 14, 1948.
