1. Chintzy decor
First off, I’m not a huge fan of the 4th of July. Meaning, if I do any sort of decorating, it would involve these. And, honestly, probably not even these.
However, if you search for 4th of July decorations on Pinterest, the majority of the results involve red, white and blue tinsel of some kind. I’m assuming this is due to the wild popularity of tinsel as a true American tradition. We really know what to embrace here in the U.S. of A.
So huge, in fact, that we decorate rooms using Old Glory’s color scheme. I was nearly inspired to start using an American flag as an throw blanket. But I didn’t.
3. Poor eating habits
4. Seasonal crafting
How could Americans celebrate the birth of their country without following their American dreams as self-proclaimed creative prodigies?
There’s nothing we enjoy more than a nice stroll down memory lane, waxing nostalgic about years gone by.
6. Monopolizing natural resources
Sup, Great Lakes?
7. Gettin’ Down
I mean, really, the 4th is the birthday of America, the greatest country in the world. Translation: Throw down like it’s 1776 errybody.
Pinterest is saturated with countless red, white and blue cakes. Which is absolutely fine.
