Patriotic holidays in the US are celebrations in remembrance of service men and women. Popular holidays include Veterans Day, Memorial Day, and the 4th of July, and red, white, and blue patriotic decorations proudly hang from mailboxes and front doors as flags wave in the wind.
During the Veteran’s and Memorial Day holidays it is common to see crosses with red, white and blue bows erected along roadsides and American flags multiply by the thousands in memorial locations. While these holidays are in remembrance of those who served, the 4th of July is a celebration of the birth of American independence from Great Britain.
Independence Day is celebrated with a bang. Businesses, municipalities, and citizens all show support and gratitude for our country and military through large celebrations, exciting fireworks displays, lively parades and festivals. Patriotic holidays are embraced in the US, as parks and recreations transform to allow tens of thousands of on-lookers to lay blankets for fireworks. Cities prep and clean streets before and after large scale parades, and families plan picnics and boat trips – usually ensuring prime visibility of fireworks as the sun sets. Patriotic decorations are used from small scale red and white napkins to larger scale patio lights, rope lights on boats and decorating patriotic parade floats, and brilliant light displays and laser shows.
Camping is extremely popular during Memorial Day and 4th of July holidays, with reservations secured well in advance. Outdoor patio string lights allow for red, white, and blue themes and fun multicolor lights to hang over tents or on RVs. Add rope light palm trees to grilling areas or to create a beach right at your campsite.
