Why the 4th of July is my Favorite Holiday

Let the 4th of July planning begin!!!  I went to Joann Fabrics yesterday and bought a boat load of fabric to sew the boys and I 4th outfits, I have been checking websites for list of 4th events, figuring out parade & fireworks schedules, planning out the yummy dessert I am going to bake and thinking of how we can decorate the pontoon boat for the lake parade... yes, the 4th of July is my FAVORITE holiday of the year!!!!

You may be wondering why in the world is the 4th my favorite holiday... I mean isn't everyone's favorite holiday celebrating Jesus' birthday?  While I do love many other holidays and enjoy Christmas time, nothing compares to the 4th of July!

Pequot Lakes Parade (2011)

Here are my reasons:

- I don't have to buy presents for anyone
- It's warm out
- I can be SUPER patriotic
- Parades with candy... need I say more? ;-)
- Hanging out on the boat
- I do not need to bounce from house to house
- I do not need to prepare a bunch a dishes to share
- Everyone is happy
- Everyone is drunk
- Watching fireworks around the lake while sitting on the dock
- I don't have to fit church into our schedule
- The kids running around with sparklers
- It hasn't been commercialized
- It's the United States of America's holiday

Watching fireworks 

The main reason I love the 4th of July is because it is a day celebrating our country and freedom- it is a day to relax and enjoy my family.  Every other holiday is revolved around preparing/buying this and that, being stressed out, running to house to house, making sure everyone else is happy.  4th of July is a holiday that everyone can enjoy :-)

Have a Happy 4th of July and God Bless!!!
