When I was growing up I could not wait for the Fourth of July! Although it wasn’t Christmas it was one of the most anticipated holidays of the year. I always looked forward to getting sparklers, watching my dad light fireworks, and going to the fireworks display in the park to watch the real fireworks.
Now, July 4th is just like any other day for the most part. I will enjoy some fireworks, but it is mainly about the kids. I will hang out with family and friends, but I could also stay inside to catch up on some work.
