I’m probably not going to get much support with this question, but does anyone else think it would be better if Independence Day were celebrated on the first Sunday of July instead of randomly falling in the middle of the week as it does this year?
It just seems like a Sunday (or even Saturday) Independence Day would be easier to plan around. Yes, I realize that means Independence Day wouldn’t always fall on July 4, but that shouldn’t stop us from celebrating our country’s independence. What if the Monday after Independence Day were also declared a holiday, sort of like Memorial Day and Labor Day. Ahh, now you like the idea!
Regardless of the timing, the Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays. Grills, patriotism, fireworks … what’s not to love? And watermelon, too. No Fourth of July barbeque would be complete without it.
Speaking of watermelon, our first weekly prize in celebration of National Watermelon Month is a flash drive shaped like everyone’s favorite fruit (that’s it above). It’s a 4GB drive, which means it’s large enough to hold just about anything! I’ll choose one comment at random from all the comments left on the blog this month to receive this prize. Good luck!
