Freedom, Food and Fireworks

Peyton and our team at AV Solutions wish you a safe and happy Fourth of July! Here are four things you probably didn’t know about the holiday:

  • Only two Founding Fathers actually signed the Declaration of Independence on the Fourth of July; most of the others signed a month later on August 2.
  • The Fourth of July was not recognized as a federal holiday until nearly 100 years later in 1870.
  • Roughly 155 million hot dogs are consumed on the Fourth of July and $107 million is spent on popsicles.
  • Every year, there are approximately 16,000 fireworks shows across the nation.

Ready to celebrate the holiday? Get outside, enjoy grilling out in the fresh air and bask in the freedom we are blessed to have as a country.

Happy Independence Day!
