Happy 4th of July!
Enjoy this wonderful national holiday and celebrate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.
It has probably been awhile since you have read this national treasure. You may wish to review a transcription of the Declaration of Independence. It is the most important and influential document ever written in America’s very short, 238-year history. It is worth the read.
We traditionally celebrate Independence Day in the United States with parades, picnics, pyrotechnics, and politicos. Three of the four are a welcome break in our summer routines. Everyone loves parades and picnics. However, the fireworks in the evening are truly the holiday’s grand finale.
If pyrotechnics are part of your celebration, you may wish to check your state’s consumer fireworks law. According to this listing, only four of our fifty states totally ban the use of consumer fireworks. An interesting observation though, each of those four states was one of the original thirteen colonies that signed the Declaration of Independence.
Have a Happy (and Safe) 4th of July!
