3. More food!
America’s birthday has become the second largest costume party after Halloween. The only difference is everyone’s wearing the same outfit: red and white stripes and blue stars. And the outfits match the decorated atmosphere. No doubt you will encounter people dressed as Uncle Sam or one of our founding fathers. And if they aren't wearing that, they will be decked out head to toe in red, white and blue. This will go well with the banners, flowers, cakes and flags flying high from every establishment.
It wouldn't be Independence Day if it didn't include America’s favorite pastime. It doesn't matter who you are, on July 4th, all of the most American Americans are baseball fans. Start brushing up on the sport now so you can impress all your less American friends with your knowledge of terminology like RBI and sac fly. And don’t be alarmed if you get choked up at the singing of the national anthem and the air show at the start of the game.
How do you celebrate your independence day? Show us by tagging #July4thPBS this holiday weekend!
