Independence Day is a family day of barbeques and fireworks to celebrate the American freedom traditions. You'll find watermelon and hot dog eating competitions, sporting events, three-legged races, and water activities.
I display my American flag outside my door and listen to the neighbor's fireworks go off with loud bangs scaring my dogs. I think the most impressive fireworks are on television with blaring patriotic music.
Independence Day is a patriotic holiday to honor the best of our United States of America. A time to give thanks for the freedom and liberties fought for by our earlier American generations.
