Summer is coming quickly, which means preparation for the summer holidays and celebrations. We can start looking forward to Father’s Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day!

Father’s Day

Father’s Day is a celebration for all the important father figures in someone’s life. Father’s Day always takes place on the third Sunday in the month of June. This year it lands on Sunday, June 20th. You can show appreciation for these men with gifts, a day dedicated to them, a meal, and so much more. If you are looking for some Father’s Day gift ideas, visit Show these men how much they mean to you by spending the day doing things that they love. This can include golfing, grilling, biking, watching sports, and whatever else your father enjoys! 

Independence Day

Independence Day is the most popular and celebrated summer holiday. This day is filled with parades, parties, fireworks, boating, and sparklers! There are a few things you can do in order to be completely prepared for this celebration: plan an adequate meal, celebrate accordingly, and spend time with friends and family. Fourth of July meals usually include hamburgers, hotdogs, pasta salads, fruit, and fun desserts! If you plan on hosting your own celebration and inviting people over, there are a few extra things to keep in mind. These would include creating an entertainment space and collecting Independence Day supplies. Creating a space outside or indoors where guests can hang out, talk, and play games. It is very common to gather outside; set out a few yard games and play some music! Decorating for the Fourth of July is a great way to get everyone in the mood to celebrate. This can be anything from setting out a flag and banners, to anything red, white, and blue. Don’t forget to end the night with a campfire, fireworks, and sparklers.

Labor Day

Labor Day is an American holiday meant to honor American workers and economic successes. It always takes place on the first Monday of September, giving all workers an extra day off and a three-day weekend. This year it will take place on Monday, September 6th. Today, this holiday is celebrated with picnics, parades, parties, and public congregations. This day is meant to give hard-working Americans a day to rest and spend time with their family and friends. It allows Americans to focus on something other than work and their jobs. This holiday is also seen as one last celebration before it is time for kids and young adults to go back to school.

Summer is filled with great holidays and celebrations. They are celebrated by getting outside, enjoying the sunshine, spending time with friends and family, and having a good time! This summer, you’re encouraged to get together with others for these celebrations! Take time this summer to commemorate the father figures in your life, celebrate this country’s great independence, and honor all of Americans’ hard work mentalities.
