If you didn't know, America was "born" on July 4th, 1776 when the Declaration of Independence was signed. The holiday celebrating this day is therefore called the 4th of July. And this article is about the how to's of celebrating the 4th of July.
You must first choose a good spot to house the 4th of July celebration. Weather permitting, an outside grassy area would be ideal for any July 4th shindig. Honestly, any place with enough space for a grill, a sit-down area for fireworks and star gazing, and some elbow room should do just fine.
Another essential part of celebrating 4th of July is the food. Traditional July 4th foods such as brats, meets, hot dogs, hamburgers, baked beans, chips, corn, etc., will be more than sufficient for your party. However, make sure to buy enough food because 4th of July celebrations are known for their good food and hungry bellies as well. But you must have snack foods available at any time such as Check Mix, Doritos, Cheetos, or good ol' Lays potato chips to complete your 4th of July cuisine. Remember to properly stock yourself with 2 liter bottles of soda, regular and diet, and other beverages such as lemonade and punch.
Nothing defines celebrating 4th of July more than fireworks. For me personally, I live in Ohio and cannot buy fireworks in the state so I and a few other guys drive over to Indiana to buy a bunch of sparklers, screamers, poppers or anything else we can get our hands on. Know if you are in a similar situation; don't fret about a hour long drive. Bring some friends along because as good as the actual 4th of July celebration can be, the preparation can be just as exciting. If you have a fireworks store in the neighborhood, go there. There's only one 4th of July celebration all year, and fireworks can either make it or break it.
Now you know how to pull off the best 4th of July party ever. So host one for your friends and family and have some great food and watch some amazing fireworks.
