For most Malaysians the above date does not mean anything. But for most Malaysians who had been staying or studying in the states i.e. USA, it would mean something. It would be a holiday and also it means fireworks. 4th July is the independence day for Uncle SAM i.e. USA, like 31st August to Malaysia. For this year's 4th July, it will fall on Sunday.
