Happy Independence Day!

Holidays on the Net is delighted to invite you to share in our online celebration of America’s birthday. On July 4, 1776, nine of the twelve colonies attending the Continental Congress voted to approve the Declaration of Independence — and a nation was born!

Help your children get into the spirit of our nation by enjoying one of our craft projects. Or brush up on your knowledge of American history, with our articles on the Pledge of Allegiance, the American flag and the Declaration of Independence. Also be sure to enjoy a little red, white and blue trivia with our Did You Know? Facts and Figures about July 4th.

Are you planning to host or attend a 4th of July cookout (would it be July 4th if you didn’t?!) Be sure to peruse all our great grill recipes — plus our patriotic pastries, like Mom’s Favorite Apple Pie.

Perhaps you are planning a trip to our nation’s capital for Independence Day? Be sure to visit one of the national monuments and memorials — there is no better way to celebrate the country’s history and heroism. Or how about visiting one of America’s 400 national parks? They are the perfect place to get in touch with the beauty and bounty of the United States.

Of course, nothing says 4th of July like an awesome fireworks display. And if you don’t mind doing a little holiday driving, you might be able to catch one of the nation’s eight best Independence Day pyrotechnic shows.

On Monday, July 4th, 2011, America will be celebrating its 235th birthday. We look forward to sharing with you one of the biggest parties yet!

Happy Holidays,

Did You Know?
Facts, Figures & Folklore
About America’s Independence

July 01 : 03 days to July 4th

Did you know that the original Pledge of Allegiance was written in 1892 by Christian socialist, Francis Bellamy?

The original version did not include the words “under G-d”. They were added in the 1950s after the Knights of Columbus successfully campaigned to Congress. Bellamy’s granddaughter said he would have resented the change.

We’ll be presenting a new “Did You Know?” fact each day as we countdown to Independence Day Day (07/04)! So stop by again tomorrow.

OK. Its been six months since you’ve made your New Years resolutions. How have you done? Lose weight yet? Me neither. :(

How about that promotion you wanted? That new job? That new love? Ha!

Did you stop Smoking? Gambling? Boozing? Floozing? (boy – you must’ve been a hell of a lot of fun!)

Well its not too late to give it another try. The year’s only 1/2 over, and ever the optimist, there’s still time to kick yourself in the butt and get back in line. Just remember…

Today is the first day of the rest of your life*

*Sad. So sad.
