July 4th is Independence day. We cannot spend Independence day together because of the coronavirus restrictions.
It is normally celebrated with fireworks and parties all over the US. In Australia it is celebrated at TGI Fridays with some themed specials. Of course this year at TGI Fridays there would be no such thing.
“Independence Day (colloquially the Fourth of July or July 4th) is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the Declaration of Independence of the United States, on July 4, 1776. The Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies were no longer subject (and subordinate) to the monarch of Britain, King George III, and were now united, free, and independent states. The Congress had voted to declare independence two days earlier, on July 2, but it was not declared until July 4”
But luckily there is apps like zoom and Facebook where you can spend time together virtually. I feel for you. I’m lucky to be in Australia but I feel sorry for you.
So here is something from Australia to cheer you up. We would love to give you some Tim Tams to help you celebrate July 4th.
If you really wanted a small meal with just your household, you could go with a classic hotdog where you buy the bun (or you can bake your own) and buy some frankfurters. And then you could have it with potato salad and ketchup, mustard, onions and cheese.
Happy July 4th guys.
