Next month is the celebration of our country’s independence again. I can already hear the sound of Disneyland’s spectacular fireworks show for the grand occasion.
While many are typically accustomed to going out of town for the weekend, these days many are more inclined to celebrate at home in the backyard. It’s more relaxing and economical to invite a few friends over for some afternoon gossip and barbecue. Set up some tables with disposable plastic table covers so the kids have a chance to unleash their creative side with some fun patriotic projects. I can guarantee some pretty snazzy flags by the end of the day.
Use 4th of July themed plates and napkins to add color and a festive touch to almost any outdoor event. If you and yours can’t go for that annual camping trip this year, let camping come to you. Pitch the tent and have an outdoor slumber party in the backyard. The kids will love it.
Before you know it, hot dogs will be grilling, fireworks will be exploding, and the US will celebrate another birthday. Independence Day is a celebration of freedom, of forward thinking, and of home.

Independence Day is celebrated in a variety of ways. Taking advantage of some time off from work to do fun activities with a group is usually the goal most people have in mind. Planning ahead can make the day more relaxing and more organized for everyone!
