Happy fourth of july & independence day

Variously known as the Fourth of July and Independence Day, July 4th has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution (1775-83). In June 1776, representatives of the 13 colonies then fighting in the revolutionary struggle weighed a resolution that would declare their independence from Great Britain. On July 2nd, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later its delegates adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. From 1776 until the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with typical festivities ranging from fireworks, parades and concerts to more casual family gatherings and barbecues.


It seems to mean a little more when you see it in print. With that said what is everyone doing for the 4th this year?

Have worked 14 straight days I am taking the 4th off. Just hang around the house with the Mrs. and cook some steaks for dinner on the grill.
Enjoy!!!

Re: Happy fourth of july & independence day

I'm hoping the rain holds off enough so we can do some boating tomorrow.

We're having a little party on Saturday, fireworks in the evening on the lake and we have a prime view on our deck, it's always a good time.

Yard work by morning, grilling by afternoon, hanging out with my buddy Jack Daniels in the evening.

Nice, I just got back from a week in Nags Head. We had 18 adults and 4 babies in a huge house right on the beach near mile marker 17; it was a blast!

Unfortunately, because of that trip my 4th will be super low key since I also have to work on Friday. My family is in OC sending me pictures of crab feasts and my nieces and nephews playing on beach and it's a bit torturous. Jerks.
