Everyone has a healthy appreciation for
positive traditions. Traditions add
rhythm and texture to our lives, bind us
together with others, give us something
to look forward to, and simply provide a
good deal of joy and satisfaction.
If you’re looking for inspiration in cre-
ating an Independence Day to remem-
ber, below I share how I do the Fourth
Hang the Flag
First thing in the
put it up, think
about your free-
doms for a bit,
and get started
with the day.
Go to a Parade
munching on a tasty pastry while listen-
ing to the float for a local bank blast “I’m
Proud to Be an American” from their
speakers. I love it.
Make Some Ice Cream
Another small 4th of July tradition in our
family is making homemade ice cream.
Here’s the recipe.
Plain Vanilla Ice Cream
2 cups heavy cream (1 pint)
2 cups light cream (1 pint)
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/8 tsp. salt
Pour cream directly into cream can. Add
sugar, vanilla, and salt. Stir with a wood-
en spoon or plastic spatula until the sug-
ar is dissolved. Churn until creamy.
Hit the Fireworks Stands
As a kid, I remember being over-
whelmed by the selection. Black cats,
jumping jacks, smoke bombs (especially
the ones that look
like grenades), and M-80s were
my go-to fireworks. I’m a
grown man now, but I’m still a
sucker for a trip to the fire-
works stand, and of course,
blowing things up.
Go See a Blockbuster Movie
Fourth of July has historically
been the day film companies
release some of their biggest and most
Light Up the Grill
Make burgers, dogs, brats, baked
beans, potato salad, and other delicious
Watch Some Fireworks
I love sprawling out on the grass with
my hands behind my head and watching
the loud bursts of color explode in the
sky. It’s the perfect way to end a day full
of food, family, fun, and patriotism.

Whether you are a novice or sea-
soned traveler, there are undoubt-
edly many decisions that you have
to make in planning your vacation.
However, with the proper advice
and knowledge, it becomes much
simpler to make your travel ar-
rangements. This article provides
useful tips and suggestions that can
help you plan your travels.
You must plan ahead if you are go-
ing to fly. Major airports are in big
cities much of the time, so getting
through traffic and to your gate on
time can be a challenge. Have your
bags packed well in advance. Be-
fore your travel day, make sure all
of your preparations are taken care
When flying on a plane, you should
plan ahead because an airline won't
always be able to meet your basic
needs, even when the flight lasts
for many hours. A flight is often
more comfortable when you bring
along comfort items; such as a
blanket, a pillow or your own set of
headphones. You should also think
about bringing some snacks with
If traveling with children, keep a
recent, color picture of them with
you at all times, just in case they
become lost. It can happen to even
the most diligent parents. Easy ac-
cess to a photograph of the child
can facilitate any necessary search
efforts if they get lost.
Travel can be a great way to edu-
cate your family members. Travel-
ing is a great way to teach your
family about other cultures around
the world, as long as you take the
correct safety precautions. The best
way to foster tolerance for other
cultures in your children is to spend
time in other countries with them.
Taking a sleeping pill can make a
red-eye flight much easier. Never
take sleeping pills before your
plane is up in the air, there may be
a delay or some other unforeseen
Try folding your clothes in innova-
tive ways that will take up less
space. This can free up some space
for other things you will need.
When you want to maximize travel
enjoyment, never forget about the
weather. Before you settle on a des-
tination, be sure to consider the in-
fluence that the weather can have
on your trip. Research the weather
forecast at your vacation spot.
Weather can ruin even the most
thought out plans, and you may
even put yourself in a dangerous
position if you are not paying close
attention to it.
Traveling is quite a popular pas-
time that most people will partici-
pate in at some point in their lives.
Information about travel can help
you to enjoy the situation in a more
relaxed manner. The tips presented
in this article are going to come in
handy sometime down the road.
