Independence Day

It’s that time of year again—when we grill out and chill out with family and friends for the Fourth of July. It’s the perfect occasion to celebrate America in all its glory. Do you ever wonder why we celebrate Independence Day? Or perhaps you are planning to host or go to a barbecue. The typical 4th of July BBQ is a day spent with family and friends, eating simple American food, celebrating our country, and lots of red, white, and blue. Whether you are a child or adult, we all look forward to this yearly holiday where we can unwind and enjoy a weekend full of festive activities.
