No matter what you think of our nation’s current affairs, I think we can all agree that today is a day to celebrate America. Just 24 hours of pure patriotism…a chance to just be Americans.

So Happy Independence Day to all my fellow Americans!

Personally, I love the Revolutionary era. I can’t get enough of it—and that includes going down to Colonial Williamsburg. I loved the John Adams miniseries and, of course, Liberty’s Kids. And I can quote 1776 like nobody’s business.

So, yes, I will be watching that today. I’m not sure what you’ll be watching to celebrate but I hope you enjoy your day!

Remember to be careful today. Wear plenty of sunscreen if you’re outside, stay hydrated, practice water safety, practice firework safety (if they are legal where you live. If they aren’t, please don’t shoot them off), and drink responsibility.

Now, I’m off to my pool and our 4th of July party!

It’s the 4th of July.

Two-hundred thirty years ago, we sent England the political equivalent of a “Dear John” letter. Our declaration was read across the colonies, usually to fanfare that included cannon fire.

Today is the one day we put aside our differences and agree on one thing: America rocks! We fire up the grills, jump in the pools and drink ungodly amounts of alcohol. All in celebration of our nation and our freedoms.

I know I’m getting ready for my family’s annual barbeque. And the weather is hopefully going to cooperate so we can go swimming. All in all, some good, Americana fun.

So if you’re American, celebrate! If you’re not…I’m sorry if you’re deluged with our patriotism. It’ll be over soon.

Yes, I know it was this past Friday. But it’s still 4th of July weekend, right?

(Humor me. Please)

So I thought it would be fun to just have some facts about the 4th of July.
