I would not consider myself un-patriotic or un-american but I must admit I do have a little trouble espousing YAY FREEDOM every 4th of July when the only people who actually became free that day was a very small goup of Rich Land-Owning White Men. I am of the opinion that true freedom is a road we are still traveling, a destination no yet reached.
HOWEVER, if there is one thing I can really truly get behind is a THEME. I love themed parties, any excuse to dress up. Christmas and the 4th of July are the only reason I even own red clothing (although I did have to borrow from Marm this year!)
How was your Fourth of July? Did you have fun? Did you do anything special?
