July 4th decorations help spark up Independence Day. The 4th of July is a day lit up with Patriotic Decorations, from American flags and patriotic banners to fireworks and starlit spheres. This year we Americans celebrate our 333rd year of independence from Great Britain, commemorated through the Declaration of Independence which was signed in 1776.
John Adams, one of the founding fathers and whose signature also appears on the Declaration, wrote the following to his wife the day the declaration was signed,
"I am apt to believe that (today) will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more."
John Adams was correct in his beliefs, as evidenced by centuries of patriotic American tradition. It's 2009, and the 4th of July is still a day for picnics, parades, parties, and games. Patriotic decorations such as Rope Light American Flags and red, white, and blue umbrella lights illuminate the night sky while citizens of all ages dress in matching red, white, and blue dresses, hats, and shirts, and flock to beaches, bar-be-ques, and state parks. Patriotic music plays loud, and everyone rejoices across the great United States in honor of our freedom. So put up your Patriotic Decorations, throw some chicken on the grill, and light up some sparklers in celebration of Independence Day!
