Just a theory, but maybe people use "Fourth" because it's shorter - like a nickname. "Independence Day" is a clunky 4 syllables. I use it anyway, but I can sort of understand the urge to shorten.

And I may start using "Happy 25th" this next holiday season :-)

"In-dep-end-ence Day....In-d'pen-dence Day.." How many syllables is it meant to have? Four or five? I need to know for when we (hopefully) move to the U.S

Get him Sally! Make him count out the syllables between the quotations. I believe you nailed it with 5. :-)

Ok, it's 5.

Crap. I need to start watching Sesame Street again :-)
