Independence Day 2012 – Fourth of July (4th July).

The 4th July (fourth of July) is a patriotic holiday observed in the USA commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776 – declaring independence from Great Britain.
Very few people will have to go to work on Independence Day and universally this day is associated with carnival type celebrations … from street parades to family BBQs, school fairs, concerts, baseball games and other sporting events – all topped off with fireworks after dark!

Many families will make the most of the long weekend with this first week in July being one of the busiest travel periods of the year, as many Americans will utilise the holiday for extended vacation trips and family reunions. People in the United States will use this time to express and give thanks for the freedom and liberties fought by the first generation of Americans.
The most common Independence Day symbol is the American flag. Its red, white and blue design is displayed in all possible ways on July 4 and can be seen in front of homes, buildings and window displays. Other symbols associated with Independence Day are the Statue of Liberty on Ellis Island in New York.

What a great time of year to grab your Coolaz stubby holders [known as Koozies in the US] and celebrate with your friends and family! Here are just a couple of designs to choose from, and don’t forget that you can add indivdual names to each of your coolers [koozies] so that you don’t get your drinks mixed up at your July Fourth event this year…

… and for those that were celebrating Canada Day on 1st July 2012 too!
