Sweet Celebration: The 4th of July
Published July 2, 2021 by Francesca Robinson, MA in Holiday
After nearly a year and a half of quarantine, restrictions, fear, and uncertainty, it feels good to step out, take off the mask, and rejoin friends and family. And the timing couldn’t be better, summer is in full swing and this weekend we celebrate the 4th of July–Independence Day. We commemorate this day with fireworks, cookouts, parades, picnics, and family reunions. After so much isolation, the celebration is sweet.
This weekend, I hope you celebrate. Celebrate America, our resilience, our independence, and that you do it in the company of others. Because if this year has taught us anything, it is not to take for granted the company of a friend, the hug of a loved one, and a grand celebration with a group of people standing less than 6 feet apart.
In the words of John Adams, we ought to celebrate this day 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.”
Happy 4th of July!
