Happy Independence Day
July 04, 2012
It’s Independence Day! Today, in the United States, we celebrate the day that we officially became our own country in 1776. Most people call it the Fourth of July. We celebrate with parades and family and food and fireworks! There are also a lot of carnivals around the country. That’s what I’m excited about. My parents already said I could go with my neighbor’s family. Since my parents don’t really like carnival rides (well, my dad does, but he wants to make sure to watch fireworks with my mom) they said I could use my allowance to go to the carnival tonight.
I think I’m most looking forward to the swings! I love all of the topsy turvy rides and the fast spinning kinds of rides, but the swings are my favorite because they make you feel like you’re flying! You swing so high and you feel so free, it’s so relaxing.
If you are celebrating today, stay safe and have fun!
