Five Ways to Celebrate July 4th

It's that time of year when we celebrate the U.S. birthday - the 4th of July.  I thought I would share some ideas on ways to celebrate.

  1. Fly the flag.  If you don't have a genuine large U.S. flag, find a small one and place it in your yard or mailbox.
  2. Host a potluck picnic or have a block party.  No one has to spend a lot of money - everyone just brings something.
  3. Go to a parade or fireworks display - there are lots of free activities out there.
  4. Shop - its a great way to help the economy.  There are lots of 4th of July sales out there.
  5. Volunteer or do community service.  This one should probably be first instead of last.  It's something we don't usually think of for this Holiday.
