    NOT A TEACHER
    I believe, "He decorated his bike on the Independence Day of XXX (country's name)," is correct.
    Please notify me of any mistakes in my posts. It is much appreciated.

    Re: He decorated his bike

    Did he decorate it on that day, or for that day?

    "on that day".

    Is "the" before "Independence Day" correct?

    Yes, unless you put the country's name before it.

    '...on American Independence Day'.
