Is anyone doing anything special for the 4th of July?

    Our friends in the UK and OZ don't celebrate the 4th, but they could add in their plans for the weekend. The 4th is on Monday so I know a few will be enjoying their 3 day weekend.

    Backyard bash with relatives and plenty of fireworks! Everyone have a safe and wonderful Independence day weekend. :-)
    Staying where I am. Lots of fireworks to watch right from my Patio. Barbeque w. family. Do not want to go anywhere, it will be crazy up here .
    I'll be looking at the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air. Other than that just chillin with the old folk.

    that's the patriotic spirit...celebrate good times, come on! :-)
    the hatchshell on the charles river, with the boston symphony orchresta.. best time any where, just dont come by boat..

    I love that place. Never by boat though. I haven't seen the BSO for a long time. Used to go when I lived in Woburn. I miss going down, but I hate to fight the crowds.

    years ago we used to go in by boat, total nightmare when its time to leave, worse than sitting on the southeast expressway on a friday afternoon, much, much easier to take the subway.
    Yes i well know that all in the USA celebrate the 4th. July and it is a big day for you all. Please do have a good day & i raise my glass to you all .... CHEERS!
    We're doing BBQ with sister and hubby, drinks, fun, fireworks... My hubby bought mums wrapped in red/white/blue.

    wasnt she hot wrapped up like that? lol!

    ha-a-a-a- :))
    If I'm not too lazy about it, I plan on going to see the fireworks display. My town always puts out one of the best displays in my area. I just hate dealing with the traffic and crowds. I wish I lived close enough to just walk down to see them.
    going to the farm consuming animal flesh and barley byproducts

    Don't sweat it, I say he'll be fine. I have an inside connection.

    Ah thanks ed for that, I really hope so wont know anything for about a week, cheers
    my sons birthday.when he was little he used to think the fireworks were for him. hell be 26 already! probably bbq.

    What a special and fun time that would of been for him,and im guessing that you pretended the fireworks were just for him.

    you know we did!
    My town did them last weekend (so they don't compete with Boston) and they do them right across the street from my house. My kids were up on the roof taking pictures. Then we watched while everyone tried to get home. I was glad I only had to walk across the street. I am not sure if I am going to attempt the crowds in Boston even though it's a beautiful display. I guess I'll have to sleep on that one. Either way I am going to have a nice long weekend.
    Wondering what the celebrations are for,have heard about it but dont know what it is.I am from oz.

    Here you go straight from Wikipedia (cause I didn't want to screw it up). Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain.

    Oh thanks for taking the time to do that for me Black3,very considerate.

    wasn't the 4th of july when we defeated the aliens? lol --- seriously i hope you all have a great independence day, have one for me.
