It seems just like yesterday when we last celebrated 4th of July and now, here we are again. If you are looking to change things up this year with regard to how you celebrate Independence Day, you have come to the right place. In this blog post, we provide you with a couple unique ideas on how you can welcome the 4th of July with a bang. Without further ado, here goes:

  1. Host a game night with friends or family. In a world where gadgets and devices seem to have taken over almost every social gathering, why not have fun the old-fashioned way and a host a game night with either friends or family members? Bust out the Cranium, Scrabble or Apples to Apples and enjoy the laughs and jokes as you count down to the 4th!
  2. Go off the grid. If you are looking to have an unforgettable time and pay the environment a favour at the same time, invite a group of friends over and go off the grid. What does this entail? This means that everyone needs to lay down their respective devices and gadgets (e.g. iPad, iPhone, laptop, Android) on the table and turn them off. It also means cutting the power in the house so that everyone has to chat and bond in the dark. This is one great way to ensure that there are no distractions. It also makes welcoming the 4th extra fun as you light up the sky with fireworks when midnight strikes. If the heat is too much, you can keep the AC on or go off the grid outdoors. What’s important is that everyone ‘disconnects’.
  3. Have a sports showdown. Set up a game of flag football with your nearest and dearest. Could it get any more American than this? Sweat up the night, stir up the sportsmanship and friendly competition, and play the night away. Make the game extra fun and challenging by preparing sumptuous meals to look forward to and rewards and prizes that are sure to be enjoyed by the victors.
