For many of these people, the American Independence Day is equally important, but quite naturally the emotions of the freedom struggle are hard to feel. What strikes the most is the week breaks that come with it. It is a good time for shopping for dresses for my kids starting the school year, for still others, it’s the time to refurbish the house with best deals on furniture and appliances being floated by corporate America, and still others use it for vacation plans. “Summertime, when kids are home, we get a good week’s vacation ready to be planned along the date,” shared a resident of New York who is always on a road trip on July 4 weekend. “Interestingly, my son engages in discussion about the American War of Independence with us and we exchange thoughts,” he added.
