My Birthday is Awesome

The 4th of July is the opposite of other holidays like Christmas or Halloween where there’s a lot expected of you. You’re expected to buy presents, or you’re expected to have a snazzy costume. The 4th of July only asks that you show up and get totally relaxed. It’s an [sic] big eating holiday, but unlike Thanksgiving, the most complicated cooking involved is placing a burger onto the grill and then taking it off the grill.
