Even though I'm sadly not doing anything real festive (since I live in a country where July 4th is just another day), I'm still proud of my American heritage today! Proud of the history of the founding of my native country; the guts and honor of the men and women that were willing to commit treason, and risk their lives just to have a chance to run their country their way...
Happy Independence Day, everyone!

Growing up, the 4th meant swimming, fireworks and barbeque. What were your family traditions to celebrate the founding of our nation?
