Interesting 4th of July Facts
Although we celebrate Independence Day on the 4th of July each year, the Declaration of Independence was actually adopted by the Continental Congress on July 2, 1776. Even more interesting is that it didn’t have most signatures on it until August of later that same year. Because John Adams believed that Independence Day should be celebrated on July 2nd, he became annoyed, and for many years refused to partake in any Independence Day celebrations occurring on July 4th. Fortunately, we still celebrate this meaningful Holiday each July with friends, family, fireworks and gratitude for our forefathers.
Things to Do for the 4th of July
With normalcy slowly returning this year, more and more Americans are anxious to celebrate this year’s Independence Day. Although the celebrations this year may look a little different than they did in the past, there is something for just about everyone to enjoy depending on your comfort level. According to a recent article on Oprah Daily, here are few ways you can celebrate the holiday with friends and family:
- Go Camping
- Go to (or participate in) a parade
- Host a back-yard bbq
- Go boating
- Create your own bike parade
- Go berry picking
- Host back-yard Olympics
- Screen a movie in your yard
It’s important to not forget all the typical 4th of July food and fare; be sure to stock up on all of the favorites such as hamburgers, hot dogs, smores and fresh seasonal fruits! Additionally, this time of year gets hot, especially in the South, so ensure that everyone stays cool and hydrated.
