Happy birthday America. Safely enjoy your 4th of July
As we reported last year (source WalletHub): Fireworks and freedom: That’s what America does on the Fourth of July to celebrate the country’s birthday, established with 56 founding fathers’ pen strokes on the Declaration of Independence in 1776. We also eat a whole lot of hot dogs: 150 million in total. We make a toast or two to freedom and good old Uncle Sam, shelling out more than $1.5 billion on July Fourth beer and wine. And we travel, with a record 44 million of us planning to venture 50+ miles from home this year.”
Why this post? The Fourth of July holiday remains a big deal. What will YOU do this year? Again, PLEASE BE SAFE. Drive carefully. Be careful with fireworks. And do not overeat.
