Love the Fourth! We’re already playing lots of Sousa marches in the car when we’re out. We love to celebrate the day with movies—-“Stars and Stripes Forever,” “Yankee Doodle Dandy,” “1776,” “The Music Man”—-and a reel of the tall ships from the Bicentennial.

In the town where I grew up, there was (and still is) a volunteer firemen’s carnival the week of the Fourth, from Monday to Saturday, including fireworks the night of the Fourth. When I was little, the week used to kick off with a parade on Sunday. Great memories!

(Plus, the Fourth is my birthday. :cool:)

That sounds like a lot of fun! :) To me, I celebrate the holiday by having BBQ while watching the fireworks! I wish you a happy Fourth of July this year!

I work the holiday, but we’ll stay have a BBQ here with my family and hubby will take the kids to see fireworks.

I mostly consider "July 4th" as the kick-off to the 2nd half of the year...

But so many people shoot off fireworks in our town....it's the one night of the year where smoke permeates the streets of the entire neighborhood, and that, along with the fireworks, makes for a memorizing sight.

Getting in the mood! Was just watching a featurette about the making of “Yankee Doodle Dandy.”
