This fourth of July, show your patriotism by decorating with red, white, and blue and celebrating the holiday of freedom with your friends and family. If you’ve been the host of many parties already, you might be looking for some new ways to show your pride. We’ve got you covered if you’re running low on ideas. Here are six ways to show patriotism this 4th of July.
1. Celebrate Patriotically With Friends And Family
First and foremost, think about how you and your guests would most enjoy celebrating the day. Are you a cookout crowd, or do you prefer to watch the fireworks? Think about how you and your guests would enjoy celebrating the Fourth of July before you make plans.
You might decorate with red, white, and blue banners on your staircase or porch if you plan to celebrate outside. Or, get some sparklers to celebrate with once the fireworks start going off.
You might also celebrate the national holiday dressed in matching American 4th of July tees as a celebratory effort! Whatever you plan on doing, be sure to find a way to incorporate patriotism into your plans to stay on theme with the holiday.
2. Have A Barbeque Or Cookout
One of the most popular ways to celebrate the 4th of July is to have a cookout or barbeque. You can go the extra mile to be patriotic by cooking only with USDA-choice meats! You might also include chicken wings since they’re so popular among American sports fans!
You can also get little American flag toothpicks to stick on top of your burgers for even more patriotic pride. Get creative with the displays of your cookout food for a tasty and patriotic celebration. You might even throw on some truffles for a fancy garnish on your burger.
3. Play Patriotic Music
Play patriotic music to showcase your pride and enthusiasm for living in America at your Fourth of July party. Create a playlist that speaks to you and your guests, and celebrate this national holiday with meaning! Some top song choices include “Proud To Be An American” and “God Bless America.”
4. Family Fourth Of July Hike
Take a hike with your family on the Fourth of July, with a destination point that offers a good view. Feel free to take tons of pics for social media, and don’t forget your hashtag: #happyfourthofjuly! Once you get to the top, you can take in all the sights and appreciate the country you live in.
5. Go Out To Eat At Diners
Celebrate the holiday at a good old American diner and get a family breakfast with all of your favorites! Eggs, bacon, pancakes, and home fries, all reflect American comfort food and are another reason to have pride in living in the USA! If you’d instead grab dinner with your family, head out to a 24hr diner; these babies offer convenience—another reason to showcase your patriotism!
6. Thank A Veteran For Their Service
Do what you can to show your pride and appreciation for living in one of the safest countries in the world! Honor a veteran by helping out with charity work, putting flowers over graves, or thanking someone for their service. There are also organizations you can donate to support veterans and their families.
The Bottom Line
Showcasing your patriotism this Fourth of July does not have to be a grand act, though it can be. Whether you are thanking a veteran for their service or celebrating the day at home with burgers, the day is all about celebrating and bringing unity across the country!
