There is really no wrong way to celebrate the Fourth of July. No matter what you plan or don’t plan, the day is a time for family. Whether it be the family you choose or the one you’re born with, the way to get everyone all together is food and drink. The Fourth is full of meals and snacks, cocktails and mocktails.
Fourth of July is a day of parades and firecrackers, bare feet, cold beer and yard games. For the city folk, it’s a rooftop pool party and barbeque. It’s sunburned noses, tank top straps slipping off of shoulders and ketchup stains on khaki shorts. It’s finding a spot on the grass amidst the fireflies. Finally, when the sun goes down and the bug spray comes out, that’s when the magic begins. Because everyone loves fireworks.
