Freelance Friday: 4th of July


Happy 4th of July weekend! This holiday, although not quite as celebratory as some of the other major holidays during the year, is definitely a fun time to hang out with friends and family. The United States is one of the greatest countries in the world and I am definitely proud to be a citizen thereof. For this week's article, I'll be touching on a few different activities you can do this weekend to celebrate the 4th and exercise your American patriotism.

Cookout With Friends

Getting together with a group of friends is a great way to celebrate the 4th of July. Having a cookout is a great excuse to get together with your buddies to commemorate the great nation that we live in. Food, friends, and fun are all a part of a great cookout experience, and this kind of event can be a great way to both celebrate the holiday and relieve stress from work or school.


Fireworks are the staple of 4th of July celebrations. Firework laws vary from state to state, but if you live in a state where you can purchase the good stuff I can't recommend it enough. For example, I live in North Carolina where fireworks are puny and unimpressive due to state laws. However, in my travels to South Carolina, I have witnessed real fireworks being shot off and I was blown away. Shooting off fireworks is a great tradition anywhere in the U.S., but I can't recommend it enough if your state allows the good stuff.

World Cup Soccer

The world cup final match has been set! On July 5th, the U.S. will take on Japan in the final match of the women's world cup. As luck would have it, this championship game is a rematch of the last championship game back in 2011. In that game, Japan defeated the U.S. in penalty kicks. This high tension rematch is taking place during 4th of July weekend, so don't miss the opportunity to watch the game and enjoy a highly patriotic experience. Recommended venues include a friend's house or a sports-based local restaurant.
