How To Make This Year’s 4th of July the Best Ever
The 4th of July.
We have celebrated this day every year since the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776.
During the second ever 4th of July celebration in 1778, future President George Washington marked Independence Day with a double ration of rum for his soldiers and an artillery salute. These days, we commemorate our nation’s birthday with summer parties, family BBQs, and trips to the beach. While the festivities have changed over the years, the underlying purpose of the holiday has remained untouched.
We are free. Free to laugh, free to love, free to dance. We know this all year round, but on July 4th, we can honestly sit back and appreciate what that means with our family and friends.
And on that note, here are some awesome, essential, and best-reviewed items that can help you enjoy your 4th of July to the fullest:
