Happy Fourth of July! July 2, 2010

Posted by Donna in Thoughtful Ramblings.

Wow! It looks like we really are going to have a beautiful long weekend to celebrate the 4th of July! Parades, picnics, fireworks and family get-togethers are fantastic ways to spend the weekend! I don’t think our forefathers thought that we would be celebrating this way on this day when they adopted the Declaration of Independence way back on July 4, 1776 in Philadelphia. Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and the rest of the Continental Congress just wanted a document to announce our independence from Great Britain and to think that this great document has lasted over 200 years! There’s some neat information about the Declaration of Independence and is signers at this website. Check it out!

As for me, I will be celebrating like the millions of others this weekend. I will be on the back of my brother’s truck throwing out candy while my brother and nephew play patriotic music on their accordions in the Parma 4th of July parade.

Enjoy your holiday and of course, Happy Reading! ~Donna
