4th of July sparklerIn cities and towns from coast to coast, the 4th of July is THE big summer holiday for getting together at USA beaches and barbecue parties for a warm weather celebration.

This year, watch for Independence Day to fall on Saturday, July 4, 2020 which for most of us means Friday off from work -- for a long, leisurely 3-day weekend.

Maybe more importantly, observing the 4th often evokes a special feeling of pride and patriotism celebrated with 4th of July fireworks shows, parades, American flag waving, popular 4th of July quotes and readings from the Declaration of Independence.

After all, it was patriot John Adams himself who declared in 1776 that the 4th of July should always " be commemorated ....with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other...."

And so it has continued -- from sea to shining sea -- for more than 240 years.

Have fun!
