I'd probably be having a barbecue with friends. What would you normally be doing on July 4th?

Go to my city’s famous Big Bay Boom fireworks show.

 

Edit: At least I didn't go to the busted one in 2012. 30 minute show ended up only being 15 seconds with the fireworks accidentally released all at once.

Buy up a mountain of mortars and shoot them off in my neighborhood.  

I decided not to do that this year because...well, I'm stupid, frankly.  This would be *THE* year to do that.

I had to work today which is normal for this job. I judge everyone who calls in about their cell issues as unpatriotic donkeys.

Taking shelter at someone else's house, or the lake. I have a deep deep hatred for fireworks. One of the largest shows is right across the street from my house. I've had things break/shatter because of it (mostly from those really heavy and bright explosive ones, not regular fireworks). But I mostly hate the extremely loud noises and heavy disturbances in the atmosphere (in terms of air pressure). Thankfully, the current events have canceled the "spectacular" show. Still, neighbours blow off other stuff. But I will never understand fireworks. What joy does it truly bring? People always say "oh the colours are pretty" or "oh the shapes are neat" but like...they're so loud you can have permanent hearing damage. Why is that fun? What joy does a shit show of explosions bring anyone?

Same as I did last year and this year. Watch fireworks.

This joke pandemic is not stopping me from doing what I believe is best.

The thing is, is it even a noteworthy celebratory purpose in any country BUT the USA? Because I don't think so. I might be wrong, though, but I never heard of other festivities related to July 4th.

 

Edit: After checking out Wikipedia, I found out that it is apparently some sort of holiday on the Northern Mariana Islands (which I've never heard of befrore), Rwanda and the Philippines.

My kids grew up and have their own lives so no more fireworks shows with them down the river on the 4th of July.  They are American born and Canadian raised.  We used to drive down the Canadian side and watch them with their stepmom many moons ago.  I miss that and so if it were not 2020 I likely would have had a bottle of liquor with me and went and sat under the overpass and drank or just made the day go by doing whatever at home.
