# Days Until the Fourth of July Calculator – How Many Days Until July 4th

Calculate how many days are left until July 4th using the Independence Day countdown calculator below.

## How to Count the Days Until the Fourth of July

Every year, Independence Day falls on **July 4th** in the United States.

You can count the days until the Fourth of July in a few different ways, but the easiest is to use our Independence Day countdown calculator.

If the current month is July, then you can find how many days are left using subtraction. Subtract the current day from 4, since Independence Day falls on July 4th.

days until the 4th = 4 – current day

You can also find how many days there are until July 4th by adding the days left in the current month to the days in each month until July, then the days in the month of July before the fourth (3).

days until the 4th = days left in current month + days in next month + … + 3 days in July before Independence Day

You can use the same method to find how many days until New Year’s, Christmas, Thanksgiving, or any other significant date.

**For instance,** if it’s currently May 29th, then you can find the days until July 4th like this:

days until the 4th = 2 + 30 + 3

days until the 4th = 35 days

In this example, there are 2 days remaining in May, 30 days in June, and 3 days in July before Independence Day. Thus, there are 35 days left.
