Happy Fourth of July From Home Biz Notes
In the United States, we’re celebrating Fourth of July, or Independence Day. There are parades, fireworks, community activities, and for many a weekend off from work. Some businesses are closed; yet others must operate to provide services for the celebrations and celebrants.
When I was growing up, our home business was the dairy farm. However, we usually visited relatives for a holiday meal, a family reunion type of gathering, then returned home for the evening chores. Then as dusk descended, we watched fireworks from the “Big Hill,” a hay field on a hill top from which we could see for miles. Bursts of fireworks were visible in the darkening sky.
How do you celebrate Fourth of July? Perhaps you have to work at your business, but probably take some time over the weekend to relax with friends and family.
If you don’t live in the United States, do you have a similar holiday? Share with us.
