The 4th of July is my favorite holiday. It's so wonderfully low-key; go to a parade, eat a hot dog, watch some fireworks, wave a flag, go to bed. It's easy, it's fun and it celebrates something I really like (I really do like America).
I can't spend this 4th of July with my family in my hometown, as it falls on a Wednesday and it's just not practical to fly 800 miles one way for a single day. My hometown has an annual parade where half the city is in the parade, and half is watching. Then we'd have a barbecue with whoever is around for the day, and watch the city's fireworks display. You can actually see the fireworks from my bedroom window.
I'm sad I can't be there, but I'll have fun in my new town, going to a festival and seeing some fireworks here. It's time to start some new 4th of July traditions!
To celebrate further, and to share my total love for the 4th of July, I'm giving away 3 nail polishes to one winner! Julep's Molly is the red,Maybelline's Colorshow in Porcelain Party is the white, and FingerPaints Electro-Midnight is the blue (and it's magnetic!).
