Holiday Invite: Independence Day on the Net

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,
Holidays on the Net

Its Summertime, Summertime, Sum Sum Summertime!

In the summertime when the weather is hot
You can stretch right up and touch the sky
When the weather’s fine
You got women, you got women on your mind

Summer arrives today at 1:16 PM EDT.
(And its the first day of Winter in the Southern Hemisphere!)

If her daddy’s rich take her out for a meal
If her daddy’s poor just do what you feel
Speed along the lane
Do a ton or a ton an’ twenty-five
When the sun goes down
You can make it, make it good in a lay-by
