4th of July. - July 4th 2010, 10:32 AM

Is today. Just wondering what everyone normally does for the 4th of July? (speaking to Americans that is ) I think my grandma is BBQ'ing. lol. Then to listen to the tons of illegal fireworks being set off. Then the tons of arrests made. Always fun.

Feel free to move to chit chat if need be.

Happy 234th birthday America xD

But then I'm not American

Of course I know what 4th of July is aka Independence day. I am American. lol. I celebrate it every year, and I usually go to a place where fireworks are near, and I wait and watch them. They are so pretty. People sell glowsticks when it's 4th of July usually.

I'm not sure if it's a bank holiday on Monday, but a lot of people have off regardless.

My town did fireworks last night, so I went to a BBQ, drank, roasted marshmallows and watched the fireworks. xD

There are some festivities a few towns over today. I guess the parade is probably over now, but they'll have fireworks tonight and there is a carnival. I doubt I'll be going, but I'm sure there will be tons of illegal fireworks going off tonight around here anyways. I live near a river so they just set them off over the water.

Elle, around where I live, all buisnesses are closed for Monday and we are closed Monday because well today doesn't really give us a day off, since it is Sunday. If the 4th of July fell on a weekday, we would just have the 4th off. If that makes sense. haha.

How was everyone's 4th? I ate lunch with my church, but did not slice the watermelon until just now.

Overall yesterday was just a day except the having lunch on church grounds part.

Here we go downtown and watch the fireworks around 8:00pm and they start at 9:15pmish and then we go home. But, speaking of illegal fireworks, on Saturday I was at a place that was shooting off fireworks illegally, they didn't get caught though. So many people do it here, I think they've given up on arresting people, lol.

It is not a huge deal but I asked mom if we could it on the 4th just for the heck of it. It is not like that is part of what everyone does that day or anything. plus I LOVE watermelon in the summer.

Well, I'm a bit late to tell what I plan to do, but what I did was basically hang out all day like normal and then go and see the fireworks with some friends =]

In past years I've been on Vacation over the 4th and watched the Nathan's hot dog eating contest
