Happy Fourth of July to each and every one of my followers! Today is the day that America celebrates it’s independence from Britain during the American Revolution. I hope that everyone has a safe and happy day as we celebrate with fireworks, fun, and food.
Just some safety notes however:
1 – More animals go missing the week of the fourth of July than any other week, keep your pets inside because the fireworks will terrify them and you should try to make this as comfortable for them as possible.
2 – Bring ear plugs for small children, the noise may bother them and nobody around you wants to hearing a screaming baby.
3 – The loud noises of fireworks can damage hearing aids, so older folks might turn theirs off so it doesn’t damage them or cause them discomfort.
4 – Don’t shoot off fireworks near flammable shrubbery, this should be simple common sense but you’d be surprised at the amount of people who don’t think of this (see the ‘bootleg fireworks’ video)
5 – Have fun!
