Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

When the fireworks are over, because my dog is terrified of going outside, right now.

I'm so glad fireworks are illegal in Iowa, because it's bad enough, as it is.

My daughter's fourth birthday!

Anime Midwest! Chicago, IL.

Nothing says patriotism and pride in the USA like dressing up as a character from Pokemon and celebrating someone else's pop culture.

My 3 year old daughters birthday is on the 4th! So her birthday party is always the highlight of my 4th weekend

The best part of the holiday is when all of the neighbors have used up all of their fireworks and we can stop worrying about our fence and yard catching on fire because of some fools lighting fireworks in the open field behind our property.

We can cellar 545 bottles here at home. This means we must quickly consume the other 436 bottles on hand...

Law Enforcement and Medicine careers make for busy work weekends for the Mrs. & myself. When the world plays on holidays, they let entirely too much hang out and, usually, without much forethought.
Mind you, I'm not complaining.
When you people act this way, it's actually job security.
On second thought:

Carry On!

To all the men and women who serve, protect and care for us on this and other holidays (and every day, for that matter), I'd like to give my own heartfelt personal "Thank You" for being there for us.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to say so!

And then there's that.

Yep, sure thankful for our independence!! Freedom is a beautiful thing!

(Except when it allows fools that are half drunk to shoot off fireworks less than 20 feet from my house!)

Working all weekend.
Waking up at the crack of dawn, so no staying up for fireworks, or boozing here.
Just another boring old weekend.
"Murika" usually forgets all about us lowly weekend folks on their fancy holidays *tiny violin* :'(

The joy in my son's face as he watches the planes fly overhead, the vintage fire trucks, police cars, and horses in our small town parade. Seeing faces we know, meeting new people. Singing the Star-Spangled Banner together with your town at the beginning of the parade, and being thankful for all the freedoms we have.

Observing American history and being grateful of the courage and determination of the few that resulted in the greatest experiment in human history, the recognition in the right of an individual.
