What to do for Fourth of July

Fireworks and grilling out are usually the thing to do for the Fourth of July holiday. Yet what are some other great ideas for this summer holiday?

Fourth of July traditions

The history of the American flag, watermelon, ice cream, cookouts, pop bottle rockets, clothespin pinwheels, annual bike parades, balloon fireworks, neighborhood parties… These are just a few of this summertime holiday’s traditions. Learn about them and recreate your own.

Show off your patriotism.  

See how red, white, and blue you can get. If you look in the store displays at the mall, you’ll find many inspirations on how to display our patriotism. Home interior stores dress their bed and bath in the colors of the flag. Home decorations abound throughout stores such as Pottery Barn and Pier One Imports.

Gift shops and card shops such as Hallmark give many ideas for a patriotic holiday with cards, balloons, gifts, and fun trinkets that are perfect for the celebration. You can even dig through your closet to find clothing that will show off your firework celebration spirit by putting together an outfit that would make Uncle Sam proud.

Read about the history of the U.S.A. 

Learn something new about the U.S. history. Grab a book from Barnes or Borders. They’re on sale now in celebration of Independence Day. There are some great biographies on the founding fathers and the country’s leaders.

Learn a thing or two from loved ones

The best way to learn about a country, its history, and the true reason for celebrating is to talk to those you know (especially your loved ones) who have lived through it. A grandparent or an older friend or neighbor can share their experiences. Walking down memory lane and discussing how things were “back in the day” will bring back memories and reasons why you celebrate the Fourth of July.

Happy fireworks and barbecue day, everyone. And remember the true reason for celebrating this holiday.
