While I do heart anything patriotic…but I am generally not a fan of Independence Day.
Gasp! A holiday Christina doesn’t like.
Not sure if Will Smith scarred me for life, or if it just my disdain for loud noises. It could also have something to do with the fact that for the first 25 years of my life I “thought” I didn’t like BBQ sauce. I am not sure why, but other than decking myself out in red, white, and blue and enjoying the day off I usually don’t do too much for this holiday.
Now please don’t come at me with “I hate ‘Merica” bashing. The Star Spangled Banner makes me cry, we fly our flag high, and I am eternally grateful for the freedom our soldiers fight for every single day. I just don’t like things that go boom and shake the house mmkay.
This year, that is all changing.
We decided that 2013 would be the year we would host a Fourth of July BBQ.
So this year, our home is decked out in stars & stripes. My mantle makes me happy. What is your least favorite holiday?
Any good Fourth recipes I should know about?
Know of any “quiet” firework shows?
