On this day in 1776, the Declaration of Independence was approved by the Continental Congress, setting the 13 colonies on the road to freedom as a sovereign nation. As you celebrate the holiday, enjoy some facts about our history and the holiday from the United States Census Bureau and other sources.
With July 4th coming up, a lot of us are getting in the patriotic spirit with firework GIFs and festive food. But you know what? Celebrating 'merica doesn't only have to happen once every July. These people are showing off their patriotism year round!
Wanna WOW your picnic guests this 4th of July? It's easy A N D edible with Taste of Home's Flag Cake. Picnics are a staple of the Independence Day celebration and this make-a-head cake will allow you time to work on the rest of the food for the picnic! Oh, and just in case it rains, I've included a bonus Fourth of July Pizza Recipe too.
Listen everyone, there's a huge dilemma on hand. The 4th of July is only a day away, and we have one question for you: what the heck are you gonna wear?! If you're like us and have zero idea, don't panic. We're here to help.
There is nothing more exciting about 4th of July than lighting off some fireworks and burning the hair off of your knuckles. However, there also is nothing more annoying than some pesky neighbors lighting off fireworks inappropriately during the week of the 4th. What is considered appropriate or innapropriate? Here's a list.
We are starting to get to the time of year they call "Dog Days", when the heat makes you do things like stick your head in the freezer. (C'mon, I'm not the only one that does that!!) Kiddie pools are a big seller and it isn't to people that have kiddies.
We're all entitled to our own opinions, but food is arguably the best part of any holiday. See, eating our way through this sort of celebration is an automatic win-win-- we're happy, our stomach's are happy, everyone's happy.
Remember Pop Rocks Candy? My first taste of Pop Rocks was in the 70's. It was like carbonated candy that caused your tongue to tingle. We thought it was SO cool to open our mouths while it was dissolving and hear the popping noises. I was excited when I had the chance to introduce my daughter to the candy when she was younger. Now, you can incorporate the fizzy, popping candy into a float for 4th of July reintroduce them to everyone, thanks to Taste of Home.
Maybe you live someplace where fireworks are illegal. Maybe secretly every time you hear some go off you are momentarily terrified that somebody on a neighboring block has just been shot to death. Maybe both (Brooklyn, rep!).
If you're like me you've used red, white and blue candles, flowers and just about everything else that color to decorate your 4th of July picnic table. These faux firecrackers from Taste of Home are darling and you can have some family fun BEFORE the holiday making them. You'll be the one-upper this year for SURE!
