For Americans, this weekend is the celebration of Fourth of July, or Independence Day, the day that commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. In the United States, this holiday is revered and very celebrated with iconic hues of red, white and blue on everything, great BBQs, majestic displays of fireworks and large celebrations among friends and family.

And who doesn’t love a great party? In honor of the upcoming holiday, here are just a few reasons to join in on the Fourth of July celebration.

The patriotism on this day is admirable and fun! From desserts, to attire, decorations and even the littlest canine friends– it’s all red, white and blue. Let the party begin!

Apart from celebrating their independence, this holiday also serves as a reminder of the history and traditions of the United States, which also includes the efforts made to fight for human rights and freedom for all.

Reasons to Grill

A proper Fourth of July party is not complete without a BBQ. Grilled vegetables, hot dogs, burgers, whatever you’d like to grill is game. After all, there’s something about a grill, surrounded by friends and family and cool drinks that makes meals and celebrations taste better.

It’s so sweet!

No celebration is complete without a bit of dessert. Independence Day is no different – blueberries, strawberries, cupcakes, and so many more! It’s such a sweet way to celebrate a great holiday. And the selection is usually very hard to resist.
