For many of US… the Fourth of July (or Independence Day) declares by it’s very nature as a “Cool” holiday. OK, well maybe not temp wise, but nevertheless “Kool!”. So go out have fun and frolic (really?) and enjoy the family… Do something. :-)
You can join others and eat, lounge by the water somewhere, grill, or just numb-out as my grandson says… Grandson #1 (meaning first born) also ask this once (with a smile), “So Papaw, kids are not Independent from parents?” His mom whirled around and he took off running laughing… Kids, you’ve go to love ‘em!
Anyway, where was I?
Fourth of July commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain (now officially known as the United Kingdom).
Independence Day when you and your family possibly attend fireworks displays or backyard fun (be careful), parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, and political speeches and ceremonies, (source Wikipedia)
July 4 celebrated as a legal holiday in the U.S!
Some say it’s the greatest secular holiday in the country. Celebrating the day became common only after the War of 1812. Thereafter, civic-minded groups worked to link the ideals of democracy and citizenship to the patriotic spirit of the day. (source – merriam-webster)
