Hey, Summer Camp Aficionados!
Today is the day of our country’s independence. Way back when in a time that we only know from history books, the people who lived in “The New World” (more modernly known as the United States of America) still felt the rule of Great Britain. Independence Day (or the Fourth of July as we commonly call it) is the day that we adopted our Declaration of Independence in 1776.
For 237 years, we have been celebrating our freedom from the rule of any other country but ourselves. That’s why we make it a pretty big deal once a year to enjoy our freedom on the Fourth of July.
As we’ve all seen the fun of Fourth of Julys past, we, as Americans, like to go all out to celebrate our Independence Day. We march in parades, we have carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games (America’s favorite pastime), we have get-togethers with our friends and families, political speeches are made with ceremonies and gatherings. And, of course, we end the whole day with a bang!
They’re loud. They’re bright. They’re an essential part of our Fourth of July tradition. Fireworks have been around for over 1000 years. Originally, fireworks were made in India by filling bamboo cases or rolled-up paper tubes with explosives. The loud bang they make when they go off was initially thought to scare off evil spirits.
At Everything Summer Camp, we’re proud to be a part of top notch, high-quality products that we manufacture right here in the United States. There’s nothing we love more than making sure that your summer and summer camp experience is as fun as it can be.
That’s all for today, Camp Fans. Have a blast today, and remember to make your summer a blast!
