2Why foreigners have trouble with the English Language Why foreigners have trouble with the English Language? There is no egg in the eggplant No ham in the hamburger And neither pine nor apple in the pineapple. English muffins were not invented in England French fries were not invented in France. Quicksand takes you down slowly. Boxing rings are square. And a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig. If writers write, how come fingers don't fing? If the plural of tooth is teethShouldn't the plural of phone booth be phone beeth?

33HOLIDAYS July 4th Independence Day During the 1600s, thousands of Europeans came to live in the New World, but the majority of these colonists where from England. These people lived in thirteen colonies along the Eastern coast of the American continent. The colonists were required to pay taxes to the King of England, and the taxes got higher and higher. Finally the colonists became furious and refused to pay. Representatives from each of the thirteen colonies met to discuss their problem. They called this group the Continental Congress. They sent a letter telling King George III that if he didn't lower the taxes, the colonists would not buy anything from England ever again. Instead of lowering the taxes, the king sent his army to America. The Continental Congress decided to fight back. They wrote the Declaration of Independence which was a document that proclaimed the colonies would no longer accept England's government. The colonies would have their own government. On July 4th, 1776, the Continental Congress officially accepted it.
