I enjoy the July 4th celebration from our home base in the Pacific Northwest. The folks on our small island really like to go all out, and it’s just so much fun! My husband and I like to go around the island with friends and try to catch the fireworks from different spots. My favorite is to take the ferry from the island to Seattle and watch the fireworks go right above our heads.
Remember celebrating the Fourth of July when you were a child? I don’t know what I liked best back then—the fireworks, the rides, or the food! Don’t ask me how I was able to gobble caramel apples, popcorn, elephant ears, cotton candy, corn on the cob, and hot dogs all in the same day – followed by swirly-twirly rides on the carousel and Ferris wheel.
I like going back in time in my head and reminiscing. What was your July 4th holiday like as a child? How does it differ from the way you celebrate today? What do you miss? What new traditions have you incorporated?
