      Hello - In First Maccabees 13:49-52, Jerusalem rids itself of the last of the Greek troops and the High Priest Simon decrees it should be celebrated every year after that. As far as I can tell, this seems to be the first celebration of "independence" in history. Does anyone know an earlier celebration of a similar sort?
