July 2, 2009 by Elisabeth
I love holidays and July 4th is one of my favorites. A few years ago I made a goal to reread the Declaration of Independence on July 4th. Because I’m currently “funemployed,” I also have time to spend on reading a book about Abigail Adams, a Jefferson biography, and Founding Brothers on audio book, which is like reading with your ears.
Every year when I watch 1776 I think, this won’t be as awesome as I remember it, but it always is. Also, every year I forget that it’s not entirely a cheesy musical and what a punch in the gut Mama Look Sharp
I might also watch National Treasure, or just my favorite scene where Nic Cage and the others are in Independence Hall and he says “the last time [the declaration] was here, it was being signed.”
I will also eat hot dogs until my stomach explodes.
Happy 4th of July everyone!
