Every Tuesday I will try to engage you in a question/topic/idea. You are welcome to write in with a suggestion you want to share or maybe talk about next Tuesday. My response is not right for everyone but I am hoping together we can generate some great conversation. And as always, I would love to hear from you on this topic or any topic out there!
Hi everyone, long time no see 🙂 I thought I would roll back into our weekly discussion with something simple and easy- 4th of July.
There are so many traditions out there from fireworks to barbecue to boating… You name it, someones is probably doing it.
My question for the week is:
- What did you do for the 4th of July?
- Do you have any traditions that you normally enjoy doing on the 4th of July?
- Do you feel there are cliches- like having to grill for example- when it comes to this particular holiday?
Feel free to answer any or all questions. Again, you can email me your response if you would rather post anonymously or if your response is lengthy.
For me, we had my parents over and my kids played in the backyard- swimming, playing with the sprinkler, bubbles- all the fun kid stuff. We grilled hamburgers and had some drinks.
As far as traditions go, we don’t have any yet. When I was younger, we used to have one but not anymore. I think I am still trying to figure out what my kids might enjoy and waiting until they get a little older.
As far as cliches- I don’t know why this bugs me but I feel like there is pressure to wear the American Flag. I understand this is our Independence Day, but I don’t feel like I need to wear the flag on my swimsuit or on my clothes/car/house for me to be patriotic. I just feel like the flag should not be worn, it should hang off a pole.
