Good morning and Happy Independence Day to everyone here in the states. For our international friends, if you hear explosions coming from our direction, don’t worry, that’s just us blowing up everything in sight (fireworks). It’s how we celebrate the 4th of July every year, and probably has something to do with that poem and later song about “the bombs bursting in air and the rocket’s red glare”, even though the poem was actually written during the war of 1812 and the tune is apparently from an old British Drinking Song. This American History Lesson brought to you courtesy of…someone who loves you. Reblogs shortly and I hope everyone has a splendiferous day.
