Happy FOURTH OF JULY!
The Fourth of July (July 4th) occurs every year celebrating the United States of America's independence from Great Britain (or, U.K.). As some of you may know, I'm a proud American despite the stereotypes(may of which are not true, by the way). So, what do Americans do on this holiday?
- Take off from work!
Most buisnesses (not all) are closed, I believe the post offices are closed, so everyone gets to spend this nice summery Wednesday at home with family and friends!
- Have barbecues!
There is absolutely nothing like barbecuing fresh steak, ribs, hamburgers, and hot dogs on the grill. For those of you on diets, I recommend dropping the calorie counting for one day and eating what you please. (No guilt, it's only one day! Plus, you can always work it off tomorrow.)
- Go to the beach!
If you're lucky enough to live seaside, or you're on vacation, grab those beach towels and sunscreen and head off to enjoy a day in the sun! If you don't live near a beach, a backyard or a pool is absolutely the next best thing. Go work on that tan!
- Shoot fireworks!
Fireworks are the best conclusion to the end of the day on the Fourth of July. Most towns will have a certain area where the local government will hire professionals to blow off big ones, but some states allow you to purchase your own fireworks and blow them off in the backyard.
What about you guys?
If you're an American, what are your plans for today?
If you're not American, what do you think about July 4th?
