"Wednesday, 4th of July means nothing to us," said one passerby.  

While grateful to live in America, many expressed frustration that the holiday didn't fall on a Friday or Monday. That would mean there would possibly be a long holiday weekend. 

Most people were annoyed that they have to go to work before and after the holiday.

"Kind of a bummer," said one woman.
