Hello, it's Jake again! I decided to post something for John while he was out enjoying the holiday.
You know what? I actually learned a few things about Indepenence Day that I didn't know. Did you know that Independence Day was first celebrated in Philadelphia on July 8, 1776? I quickly found out that the Fourth of July has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941.
I don't think that there is one single house that dosen't have some sort of cookout (or cook-ins in some cases). There have been several auctions that John has gone to on Independence Day, many of which an auction company make them annual customs, just like a barbeque. There are even some antique malls that have a huge gala today.
I hope that you have a fantastic Independence Day!
